Greens Report – 6th June 2017

Routine maintenance to the greens, tees and the fairways has continued throughout the month. Now that the dry weather has been replaced with heavy rain if we get a warm spell we would expect to see a good increase in growth we should also see an improvement to the remaining verti-core tine marks on some greens and fairways.
Further work has been carried out on the practice net and hopefully it should now be in a safe condition to see out the season.
The access road going down past the greenkeeper’s facility has been re-surfaced down to the concrete pad area and completed.
The process to upgrade the paths and walkways has begun, the area and path between the 5th & 16th tee has been resurfaced with rubber crumb but the verge areas has still to be completed.
Part of the pathway on the sea side of the 15th tee has been upgraded leaving the bottom section still to be completed. We have taken a further delivery of materials to allow us to complete this area.
Some of the ball washer poles and the stand at the clubhouse has been rubbed down ready for re-paint


This Months Targeted Jobs,

Further work is required to increase the size of the practice area beside the churchyard.
Continue the process of upgrade to the paths and walkways throughout the course, the next area is likely to be beside the 8th Tee.
The tees are due to be Verti-cored and top dressed, this process is very much weather dependant.
