I know i say this every week but it was another productive week on the links.
At the 1st, heavily rye grass turf was killed off with a total herbicide weeks ago.
We then removed the rye grass area and re-turfed with cleaner turf from the 17th fairway,
Also at the 1st.
A mound right at the back of the green was reduced in height
and re-turfed. The mound always caused problems especially when spraying as it was tight to turn in that area.
Bunker work nearing the end. Three teams (Steve + Ross, Mark + Barry, Malcolm + Chris) completing bunkers
at the 15th
and 16th. All bunkers looking good.
Dangerman is back and full of fresh ideas!!!
Other re-turfing work going on at the 14th green.
A simple turf replacement.
On Friday, we had a visit from the Ladies Golf Union. This was to run through course set-up for this years Ladies British Open Amateur Championship.(June 26th-30th)
We also had a visit from a photographer taking pictures of the new Kubota machinery we recently purchased.
Other machines that have just arrived are two Tru-Turf rollers, two Groundsman turf-cutters
and three Toro Hybrid triples.
17th fairway getting some final prep work. Turf due to arrive on Tuesday.
