  • 2018 Aeration Schedule

Avoid aeration times and play golf in Hawaii!
In general, golf courses in Hawaii conduct the aeration process in April and September. Over the time, golf course's grass and turf are damaged by golfers. Specialized machines, called "Aerators" puncture the soil and sprinkle new grass seeds and fertilizer, which causes new, beautiful grass to grow. During this aeration, golf courses are closed for a few days. However, it can take several weeks for a golf course to return to perfect condition. If you are planning to play golf in Hawaii and are particular about the condition of the course, you may want to avoid travelling to Hawaii around April and September. Coral Creek in the Ewa area has 19 holes and conducts aeration throughout the year without a set schedule. However, this is a unique case and most courses disclose their aeration schedules. Check with Tachibana Enterprises to find aeration schedules for golf courses all over Hawaii.

About aeration:
Turf compaction happens when players walk on turf, compacting the grass and limiting the oxygen supply to the roots. In order to reverse this natural consequence of golfing, aeration is conducted. Using spikes to remove turf with soil helps promote healthy oxygenation of the turf and therefore it is essential maintaining a well conditioned turf.Golf Courses BOOK NOW
