With the new year comes greens maintenance I will bring forward verti draining of the greens to Monday the 9th of January. As I’ve noticed that some greens are wet in areas and I want to help get rid of any excess water laying about in the top profile. I do apologise for the late notice but this work is essential to keep our surfaces firm and draining well.
Just a little information what we the greenstaff will be dealing with in the coming days. Protecting the greens is priority for us and if we need to use temporaries just while the greens thaw out then we will.
Please be patient and we will be on main greens as quickly as possible.
Whilst we have snow on the ground the staff have been busy replacing the bridge that leads to the 11th tee. Also clearing shrub and self seeded sycamore trees from the right hand side of the 11th hole. The reason for doing this is so we can have access to the ditches that are between the 11th and 14th holes to maintain and clear if there was ever a blockage. We will be tackling the 8th tee steps and removing shrub and all under story from the 3rd ditch area so we also can maintain this ditch to a better standard.
Hope to see you all playing soon. The staff would like to wish all members a very merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.
