April Greenkeeping Report
This month you will have seen the shockwave machine being used on all of the areas of the course that suffer with excess water through the winter months. This machine cuts into the ground to allow water to filter through the areas of clay and also into the stone drainage channels already installed.
The green dye, you will have noticed, on the greens is just a spray indicator and is completely harmless. The winter program is about to start with the filling and repair of all rabbit holes and to vertidrain the whole of the course before too much wet weather. The green staff will then start repairs to the tees.
You will have noticed that all of our yellow tees have been moved to their forward winter positions.
The white tee will be moved forward as much as possible to allow our competition tees to recover.
As you will all have seen the practice net frame has been turned to face the pro shop and the two new archery nets have been fitted.Thanks to Justin for his help with this, I have received a lot of positive comments. Gordon has got some Astro turf to cover the exposed concrete which will tidy the whole area.
All of the greens have now been cored…
Thankfully this month has seen some much needed rain on the course. Our reservoir by the 7th tee which did dry out at the beginning of the month is now replenished, enabling Gordon and his team to water when necessary. The results of this turning our brown fairways back to green and producing new growth to our greens. Gordon assures me that the odd bare patches on some of the greens will soon repair with the new growth.
As you will have seen the quote to Tarmac the buggy path from D. A. Giles is rather more than expected . Ray will be getting a second quote to compare.
Gordon’s foot is improving all the time and he hopes that very soon he will be back to work full time.
Next week I will be organising a works party to re-site the practice nets. As soon as I know when Justin is free, I will let everyone know. If you are available, your help to move it to its new position would be appreciated.
Hi everyone, here is this months greens report.
What a very hot, dry month we have had. Although the weather has left us with a lot of very brown fairways I think Craig, James and Chris have got our course looking and playing like a true links and in suburb condition.
During golf week this month both Craig and myself received some very positive comments on the condition of…
Mullion is not only the most southerly course in England, but one of the most beautiful courses in the West Country.
Whether a high or low handicapper, the course will challenge you but be careful that you're not distracted by the stunning scenery.

Cliff-top golf, the best greens in Cornwall and a wonderful atmosphere - are just some of the reason to join Mullion.
