I was down at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.

How bloody green is that, must have had an early false spring this year!!

Back on the course, greens had a light dusting of top-dressing and newly turfed areas were midi-tined.

Replacement of a cracked pipe at the 9th/12th

Low fairway areas were deep cored with the verti-drained and hand filled with sand.

Only one week in and a chunk out of one of the greens.

Greens hydro-jected with seaweed added in.

Divot team are back 5 men with a combined age of 634

Sad news as Stuart leaves the Championship and moves to the Buddon, we ll miss his squint lines on the greens.
