Tuesday 5th July

As from yesterday, we now have G.U.R. on certain areas of a few fairways (3rd, 11th, 14th and 18th). Making these areas G.U.R. will help popular divotted spots heal up in time for the RWBO. If your ball lands in the area, you are made to drop in the semi-rough to the side and no closer to the hole.

Yesterday, saw the arrival of the contractors for the Open. They did n't waste anytime and had a handful of scoreboard frames and a start made to the hospitality area by this morning.

Out on the course, greens were cut as normal @ 4mm and a start was made to hydrojecting greens with seaweed. We were also down at the Pro Centre preparing for a last load of turf which is due tomorrow (Wednesday).

On the wildlife front, it looked like an attack of jellyfish in the burn and Dangerous Jimmy's escaped pet budgie was spotted on the 17th green.

The Scottish Open is on this week at Castle Stuart, best wishes to Chris and all his team in what is the course first tournament.

Finally, we would like to say welcome aboard to Chris Murphy. Chris has taken over the new look tea hut, i am sure all the greenstaff will be in soon to sample all his stock!!
