Last week of the winter course this week. The forecast is looking very good temperature wise.

Over the past few weeks we have busy coring, top dressing and getting ready for the new season.

New turf at the 17th fairway midi tined, brushed up and top dressed. The same procedure (with rubber crumb added in) applied to new turf areas, walk off areas and any weak areas.

The Hydroject has been out on walkways and fairway bumps.

A homemade special mix was made up for the greens and approaches and put out.

Irrigation up and running. Sprinklers here and there being raised up.

We have created a new turf nursery area at the 3rd,4th,5th triangle.

This area will be a nursery for fairway turf.

Elsewhere, coastal defences are being improved by Angus Council in a bid to stop further erosion.

Mechanics are busy installing safety barriers around the shed.

The Imlay Bridge at the 10th is opened by John Imlay and former Chairman Gordon Murray.
