Summer Maintenance Schedule

Palmilla Golf Club has 27-holes, which results in a consistent 18-holes of great conditioned golf. We keep each 9 hole course closed for 3-4 weeks, until the greens have had time to heal before it reopens and another 9 is closed for aerification.

What is aerification?

Aerification of the greens, tees and fairways occurs during the summer months. To aerify, a piece of machinery built for the task cores the ground, punches holes and removes the dirt in a certain pattern.

This is done to loosen soil that has been compacted by golfers walking over it, opening up growing room for the roots and increasing oxygen to the roots. Recovery usually takes a few days to a week for the holes to fill in and grow over.

The schedule is as follows:

Arroyo-Mountain (Ocean Closed):
May 29-July 31, 2022

Mountain-Ocean (Arroyo Closed):
August 1-September 10, 2022

Ocean-Arroyo (Mountain Closed):
September 11-October 23, 2022

The following is a preliminary schedule for the course closures at Palmilla GC. Please be advised that these can change without notice due to heal times, unpredictable weather and/or projects being completed.

Please contact the Golf Shop for the current course openings and closures. We are sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or the Golf Shop.
