Courst Report - 10th July 2018

Actions undertaken in June

• We are continuing to manually water 8th – 10th Greens in the field daily, the irrigator system pipe will hopefully be reinstated by this time next week.

• Entrance road and car park tar surfaces repairs have now been completed.
• Path to the ladies 7th Tee has been completed and should be ready for use in the next few weeks dependant on some rain.
• Grass cutting routine to the fairways and green has been reduced due to the slow growth rates.

July Targeted Jobs

• Erect a new fence to screen off the small yard area at the course side of the small greenkeepers shed.
• The Daisy Spray application which had been delayed due to the dry conditions will not now go-ahead this year, even if we do get some rainfall it will soon be too late in the season to get maximum effect from the application.
• The last two shell paths are to be upgraded at the 2nd & 10th.
• White line marking has been completed to the carparks, the paint currently applied is of light quality and used to determine if the lines were at a reasonable angle, it looks like we could go-ahead and apply more permanent and better quality paint.

• Drain upgrade plan has still to be completed.
• Upgrade to begin on the 6th Yellow tee, the playing area is to be enlarged with a new rail erected, the surface will be overlaid with matting and movable Tee mats used as a playing surface.
