Another dry week, but temperatures started to plummet towards the end and as i look out the office window i can see some flurries of snow.
The 11th fairway was dry enough for us to mini core and top-dress,

other areas cored were fairway extensions at the 4th and all the teing areas were finished. These areas all recieving top-dressing too.

Certain greens were overseeded again, mainly areas that take a lot of play and rye grass areas just off the greens. We will hope to Rescue these areas come the spring.


Fairways were cut along with approaches/surrounds and tees. Growth is starting to tail off now.

Another dusting off top-dressing was also applied to the greens before being brushed in, cut and rolled

Strimming mounds and other areas

In the sheds, Derek is making up cement sleepers to go on the bridges as the local factory where we got them from before has shut down.
