The sun is out but the temperatures are still low.

Yesterday we were out top-dressing greens and approaches,

dew brushed off the greens and approaches first with the tractor brushes then sand brushed in behind the dresser.

Areas then cut behind the brush

and rolled.
 A good drop of rain (3.5mm) at night helped the sand top dressing into the sward. 

After all that we went out and took our twice weekly readings with the moisture meter, clegg hammer(firmness) and stimp meter(speed).

Today, greens were rolled and we top dressed tees, certain green surrounds, the public putting green and the turf nursery.

Dangerous Jimmy has had a busy week so far. Here he is looking for balls in the burn whilst cleaning out any weed.

Romping the Links office garden, that shouldn't need cut for a month now!!

Cleaning out the waste water treatment system with the pump

(which the pipe had a hole in it and sprayed Alan's clean car with waste water).

Hope Sandy doesn't think just cause he has a new job he is going to get it easy. He better hurry up and hand cut the 1st tee as he has bunkers to rake after that!!!

Another job that has just been completed is down at the Golf Centre.

Golfers and delivery van traffic has worn out to the sides of the path.Plastic trackway has been inserted down the pathway and seeded.

Once the grass grows through this should tidy this area up.
