In the past month we have managed to install irrigation and move 90 tons of rootzone on to the tee during the snow, rain and frost. We are roughly a week behind due to the weather and the forecast is looking good for the next 3 weeks. We have booked the lazer level for next week and we are hoping to turf the tee on the week of 25th February. We will keep you posted in the coming weeks.
Work has began renovating the 11th tee this week, starting by digging out the existing irrigation heads and also straightening the fence posts that already in place. Also removing the turf from the top of the tee.
We will inform you of the progress on this project below⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️.
Today we will be cutting down the last 2 willow trees to the right hand side of the 2nd fairway just before the newly erected pathway down to the 3rd tees. These are due to come out as they are very evasive and will in no time send roots through our new drainage, this will then cause blockages and will leave the drainage unable to work to it’s full potential.
We will continuing verti draining fairways around the course so please be aware of this.
As part of our long term 5 year plan, work has started on the 11th Tee renovation. The tee will be in use over the Christmas period however major work on the tee will commence on the week of 7th January 2019. Weather permitting!
See attached document below……
The majority of the over hanging branches in the gap have been pruned by our tree climbers and the next step is to take a few small oaks on the left and right of the gap. Rather than close the hole for a few days we will complete this work when the course closes and we are able to work in safety.
Work has commenced vertidraining fairways and aprons, this will relieve compaction, improve drainage and health/vigour of the plant. We hope to complete this operation before Christmas.
We are noticing many pitchmarks that have been badly repaired and will take longer to repair, please follow the instructions in the video below on “how to repair a pitchmark”. This will aid recovery and improve surfaces.
