Aerification

Our fall aerification process is nearly complete.  All 18 greens have been completed and there are only 6 fairways left to finish.  Because of the heavy thatch on the fairways, the aerification has become vitally important to the health and playability of the fairways throughout year.  However the process is long and tedious because the irrigation piping and wiring from years ago was installed so shallow.  So as the saying goes "something is better than nothing", but the fairway aerification is not the deep aerifying that ideally we would like to do.

The start of the long process

A closer look

  1. I bought a membership of Country Vacations at Andheri Country Club. I was charged an amount of Rs.72000/- for 10 years I was promised to give free accommodations in any of the Country clubs across India and abroad in Country clubs own property.
    If at all a certain place is not on the list Country club has a tie up with DAE (Dial an Exchange) & RCI (Resort Condominiums International).
    So if one requires a booking in a particular place /state/Country which is listed on these tie up companies then the CLUB shall bear the accommodation charges and the member will have to pay a utility charges ranging not more than between Rs.3000-Rs.15000, depending upon the season and type of rooms. I wanted to book a vacation since November and the club is offering me packages including accommodations and sightseeing for which all the expenses shall be beared by me and the club shall not pay anything.
    I told them I accept the fact that the place chosen is not on their club property but is on one of the DAE or RCI properties, so the Club should bear the accommodation charges whereas I pay the utility charges.
    But they now refuse to do the same and are showing me packages worth Rs.7000/- per night. If I had to spent Rs.35000/- on my vacation why would I spend Rs.72000 for the country vacations membership??? I have discussed my issue at Consumer Court sitealso and requested to take some action against them but everything is worthless.
