While the golf course gets drier with each passing day, I refuse to put out wetting agent on our fairways in January. It just doesn't feel right. Its like having turkey on any day other than Thanksgiving. Really?
In lieu of the wetting agents, we are running all of our aerators with 3/4" spikes on them. They are truly impressive pieces of steel and they are more effective than any wetting agent this time of year. We will complete all of the tees, approaches, and fairways by the end of next week. Rough's were just completed with a 3/4" core.
So the greens don't feel left out, we will also punch them next week with 1/8" solid tines. Who knows, maybe a little sand too.
