Despite a wet Wednesday, its been another good week. The course stood up really well to over 10mm of rain.
Lots of small but time consuming tasks completed this week.
The range tee is now closed and received a good cut and heavy divot to aid recovery thru the winter. Brian has bought some new mats, so play can continue.
The greens were micro-tined on Monday, the 1st time since early September. This was followed with a cut and iron to restore the surfaces. The Air2G2 was again in use as well to breath life into the greens, The drainage work on the 12th was treated to a top-dressing. The turf is already rooting, so the green will be rested this weekend to help the roots establish.
It was a busy week golf wise, which meant continued set up work to fit in as well.
We have a side-arm flail tractor on hire as well this week. United Utilities are paying for it, so we are tidying the verges and routes thru to the waterworks. This will also involve some treework next week on the track to the 15th tee.
The seed on the 8th tee has germinated well and was top-dressed with sand.
We also placed some stone on the newly formed winter tee on the 6th hole. This was compacted and levelled. more work will be carried out next week.
Fingers crossed for the weekend weather.
Mark & the Greens team.
