A busy week with some real progress (at last).
The course had started to dry out nicely, with some cold weather keeping the rain at bay. The snow cleared during Monday and the course was fully open by Wednesday.
We have started our program of bunker renovation. The oldest bunkers have raised faces and the sand is badly contaminated following years of washouts. It is our aim to restore the bunkers to there original design and install a blinding carpet to prevent future issues with contamination. The steepest faces will have the "Bunker Mat" material, while the base of the bunkers will have a more economical material fitted. Some slight alterations will be completed were needed to prevent some drainage issues.
The Air2G2 is still being used weekly on the greens to aid firmness and drainage.
We have also re-surfaced the buggy path on the 5th hole as it has suffered badly during the recent floods.
Next week will see more bunker work and the laying of turf in many small areas around the course.
Fingers crossed the weather stays kind to us all.
Mark & the Greens team.
