A very busy week all over the course with lots of tidying up following the recent wet weather.
The drainage work on the 14th & 15th holes is settling in well with real improvements in these areas.
The over-seeding of the greens has settled down and I managed to get a nice dressing of sand brushed into them on Thursday, it will help fill the grooves in and protect the new seedlings when they emerge.
Lots of rough areas have been cleared of debris and tree bases have been cut. The recently seeded walkway areas have been dressed with sand, fertilized and deep tined to aid their recovery.
The majority of the course received a cut this week despite some morning frosts, fingers crossed these don't continue as the frost keeps soil temperatures down and slows recovery & growth. The 5th carry has been topped up with soil & seed and there are signs of germination already.
It is planned to allow visitor buggy use from next week (weather permitting) following the recent restrictions on their use.
Next week should see more mowing, dressing and some work being carried out on the new 1st tee path for the Ladies.
Have a great weekend.
Mark & the Greens team.
