Sunday 15th January 2011

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.

Hard grafting!!

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.
