The water damaged paths have been mostly reinstated.

The trees at the railway side of the 9th tee which had begun to be a problem from the medal tee have been pruned back.

All greens have been top dressed

Greens Report - 12th July 2017

Routine maintenance to the greens the tees and also the fairways has continued throughout the month.
Our external contractor has sprayed the fairways on the seaside of the course excluding the gully holes with selective weed killer to eliminate daisies. This is hopefully the last of a 3 year programme where our own staff will attend to any remaining patches that appear on the course. This should be sufficient for us to stay reasonable clear for the next 7-8 years.
Paths at the 8th and 14th tee have been completed with rubber crumb and rubber wear mats placed at the ends.
Verti-draining and top dressing has begun on the tees which should encourage growth and help to smooth out the tee surfaces.
Work has begun to reinstate water damaged paths.


This Months Targeted Jobs,

Complete the Verti-drain of all the tees and apply a heavy top dress application. This process will be spread over a few weeks to allow for hand cutting of the Tees during this process.
Verti-cut & top dress greens.
