Remedial work has started to repair the drought damage on several green ‘fringes’, with re turfing and or re seeding please treat these areas as GUR.Here’s an update to give an insight of what’s been happening recently.
The remaining tees have been completed and solid tined, we have also solid tined all surrounds and approaches.
The 15th tee has been hollow cored, dressed and over seeded with a cold germination seed ( never used this product so it’s a good trial project ). All tees have been sprayed with iron. We managed to get our Autumn/Winter fertiliser on the greens at the perfect time and it has shown great response. We have trimmed and tidied all low branches in the copses at 11th/15th, 11th/12th, 12th/13th and 12th tee. The gorse bushes in front of 16th have been thinned and some removed so that the fairway can be seen from the tee. We took the opportunity with no golfers to fell and remove a dangerously rotten ash tree at the 8th that was a big risk to Health and Safety due to its condition and being on a pathway.
Greens and tees have been cut once again and leaves are still falling ( surely there can’t be many more left ).
