Long time since my last post, don't worry i am still in the position!!

The course looks really nice when the sun is out,

the butterflies love it

and so do the wildflowers but

when it rains its


The pencil tines were out to help get rid of some of the water.

1999 all over again.

We have been out cutting seriously thick areas of rough

to try and speed up play

plus let golfers find their ball a bit more easily.

Inbetween torrential showers we have been out top-dressing the greens, thats us now over the 100t/ha.
Over the last month i have had the chance to go to a few Championship tournaments. Well Done to Chris Haspell and his team at Castle Stuart (Scottish Open), Paul Smith and his team at Royal Lytham (The Open and Malcolm Kydd from our staff who helped out), Euan Grant and his team at Turnberry (Seniors British Open) and Good Luck to Neil Ballingall and his team at Fairmont St Andrews who is hosting the Scottish Seniors Open next week.

The dark nights are coming.

New holes on the Buddon Links are coming on leaps and bounds. View from the 12th tee.

Bunkers revetted at the 10th green.
