August Greenkeeping Report

Hi everyone,
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.
Thank you
Dale Wilson.

Greens Report February 2018
Welcome to my February Greens Report.
That was a wet 6 weeks that was!
Time was utilized as best as possible and all of our greenkeeping machinery has been thoroughly maintained! Out on the course the boys have persevered, often in horrendous conditions, and, bar losing up to half a dozen holes for relatively short periods, done a fantastic job maintaining the course in excellent…
