Aerification Notice: 

We will be conducting our Fall 2023 aerification on September 5, 2023. Thank you for your understanding while we perform this standard and necessary maintenance procedure. We will toggle between front and back starts as needed and expect minimal disruption on playability during this timeframe. Please note, all dates are subject to change due to weather. For the most up to date course information, contact the golf shop at 248-852-7100.  Anticipate approximately 7-10 days for recovery, based on normal weather conditions.


Why is aerification important at Pine Trace Golf Club?

Aerification is nothing to be dreaded, but something that should be welcomed! 

Turf needs four basic items to survive: soil, water, air and sunlight. Soil and sun we have plenty of (in most cases), but air and water are essential and getting them to the roots of the turf plants are a big reason why we punch holes in the ground. Water and air movement into the soil gets limited over time for a few reasons and our goal is to combat that to give you healthy, well-performing greens.

One reason is that. If you’ve ever played on a fairway or green that feels spongy under your feet, this will help you understand what thatch is. It is made of the dead and decaying parts of turf plants, and it accumulates as the grass grows. If it is not removed, it forms that spongy layer that you feel and doesn’t let air and water into the ground for the living roots. So…we need to remove it, or at least poke a hole through it.

A second reason is compaction. The soil under the turf gets compacted from all the foot traffic of golfers, as well as the constant mowing and rolling equipment that prepares the surfaces throughout the season. As soil compacts, it loses its ability to hold enough water and air to keep the plants alive. Aerification loosens up the soil, and allows for room for roots to grow and capture this air and water.

The third main reason is soil modification. You’ll notice that following an aerification process the holes on the greens are filled with sand. Sand provides a good growing medium for the turf and improves playability for our golfers. It improves the way the surface drains and also provides for a firmer, smoother putting surface.
