Greenkeepers renovated the wear and tears this week!

The Greenkeeper’s have been busy renovating the wear and tear areas this week. Last week Chris Ward aerated path ends and high traffic areas from green to next tee areas, that suffer wear in the winter.
Chris Witchlow followed by over seeding and then Luke Jenkins topdressed these areas with 20ton of sharp sand. This work will improve these areas during the winter and will be a long term solution to improve winter play and will continue in the spring and autumn months.
