A horrible week on the course with the Easter weekend weather playing havoc with the course. It was even closed for a few hours on Monday morning.
The introduction of Summer rules on Good Friday led to
widespread traffic damage throughout the course. With this in mind, I
have restored winter routes for all buggies.
The start of this short
week saw us repairing damage and tidying areas ahead of the upcoming
Captains Drive-in. Some bunker work is still outstanding, due to the
difficulties we have had moving around the course and the proposed work
to the 1st tee path will have to wait til next week also.
The fairway aeration work will be finished next week and then we can concentrate on scarifying the fairways & approaches.
greens have softened slightly following the rain, so I managed to apply
some compost tea & Roca-stem to help firm them up.
I cut the
greens on Thursday morning and started counting pitchmarks. By the time I
got to the 8th green I had counted over 100 unrepaired pitchmarks, so I
stopped counting. Next time you play and notice some bumps, please
think of the part you all have to play in maintaining our surfaces.

They have been ironed to restore some smoothness.
week, we start some renovation work on the greens. Deep scariying,
top-dressing and over-seeding will take up to 3 days. Lets hope the
weather warms up to aid recovery.
Fingers crossed for a good weekend & enjoy the Captains Drive-in.
Mark & the Greens team.
