Greens Update

The winter has been a long and fairly hard one through 2017 and continued into 2018

with lots of long wet spells alongside a fair amount of snow and some good hard frosts 

      

 

despite all this to contend with the greens team have continued to maintain and carry out almost all of the usual tasks and a few additional improvements thrown in for good measure

in the early autumn the greens, tees, fairways and surrounds where verti drained at varying depths depending on requirements and ground conditions  to not only aerate but to increase percolation rates through the surface profile

 

 

 

various pruning and tree removal has been carried out in particular the 3rd hole with large over hanging bows and a few trees being removed to increase visibility and playability

   

The 3rd retaining wall has been replaced following the collapse and rotten condition of the original sleepers, heavier more effective supports and better fixings and construction alongside weather proofing of the timber should ensure a longer life 

   

improvements and replacements to the shoe cleaing area have been carried out to good effect with a new replacement compressor now being housed away from the elements and additional air lines and brushes adding to the usability of the service

 

 despite the harshness of the weather the greens in particular have stood up well, a recent treatment of 3.0.3 + fe to give them a little perk up, still lots more to do with a lot of aeration and renovation work planned on the greens alongside over seeding and dressing as soon as the weather picks up
