The weather has really improved today, with almost spring like conditions. Much better than the drizzle, fog and cloud earlier in the week.
The Greens were slit on Monday & Tuesday to help keep the surfaces open and aid drainage. This was followed by a cut with the hand mowers (which we always try to use during the winter months) to restore the surfaces. The penetrant is still helping reduce the dew in the mornings and this will also help the greens fend of any disease outbreaks.
The construction work on the 1st tee continues when conditions allow, the surfacing of the paths will take place in late February/early March as temperatures need to be higher for the materials to look their best. The bank at the front of the Men's tee will be turfed next week and more work will be carried out on the Ladies/Winter tee, including the installation of sprinklers.
The bunker renovation work continues with the 10th greenside bunkers being dug out and prepared for turf. The turf will be delivered next week, so that will keep us busy.
The fairways will be slit throughout next week and we will then move onto the approaches and semi-rough. It would probably be better to use your fairway mat on most holes as this can be quite disruptive.
Have a great weekend.
Mark & the Greens team.
