Another busy week on the course.
For the 1st time in a while we managed to aerate the greens using the Air2G2 machine. This is a very labour intensive operation, with each green taking up to an hour to complete. The recent staff shortages have meant it was one of those jobs which kept being put off. It will certainly help the movement of rain water thru the profile.
We have also completed the tractor mounted spraying of weeds on fairway, aprons, semi-rough & rough areas. The remaining weeds will be treated by knapsack sprayer when the weather allows.
The rough is still proving a challenge as it is difficult to get a clean cut in wet conditions. Hopefully a dry spell will allow us to use the Amazone to scarify and collect the cuttings.
We have some work planned for Monday, but this will only involve a light sand dressing and brush in. Next week will also see another round of bunker maintenance taking place.
Enjoy the weekend.
