All three Davenport Golf Courses will be aerified in the upcoming weeks this fall according to the schedule below.  Courses will not be closed during aerification, but 9 holes may be temporarily closed during the process.  Please call the clubhouse for questions or assistance in scheduling.


We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but aerification is important to keeping our golf courses in top shape.  Those little holes in the ground allow air and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass.


Consider that aerification is merely a short-term disruption that has long-term benefits for the course. When you see them, remember that without those little holes, the greens would eventually die.


Preventative maintenance is an integral part of successful golf course management. Golfers view aerification as an inconvenience that takes the greens out of play for a day, pulling cores from the greens and leaving holes that can affect putting for many days before healing.  But it's a necessary part of maintaining the course so that you may enjoy it during the season.


Thanks for your understanding.

Duck Creek    Sept 10-11
