Many thanks for all of you who took the time to fill out our customer survey, your feedback and support is much appreciated. You can look forward to us publishing the results in the new year.
The 2018 season presented our greenkeeping team with a new set of challenges starting off with one of the wettest winters on record to one of the hottest summers on record. These unprecedented conditions proved a challenge for the team and we are looking into reviewing our practices and looking into improvements to our irrigation system to prevent the burning out of the greens over summer months under heatwave conditions. We are confident moving forward operations will be in place to provide an excellent golf course all year round.
Proposed works over the forthcoming Winter Period;
- Path upgrades on holes 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 9th.
- Fairway bunker on the 5th will be reinstated. The plan is to find the problematic drainage line, repair, and add the required amount of sand.
- Greens – We will pass over the bare areas using the hollow core machine, then manually apply a divot mix with seed. This will create a seed bed for the new grass to germinate and fill in the bare areas. Head Greenkeeper Jon Wilson states “I am pleased with how firm they are, colour and health of the greens”
- Tees & Fairways – Using different techniques e.g ( verti-drain, slit, core ) during the winter months to help reduce surface water.
- Rough – Wheel bearings are being replaced, I hope to have the mower back out soon leaving good definition which is welcomed at this time of year.
- Leaves – An ongoing process at the moment using our back pack blowers and tractor powered blower. We will collect once piled in an area. Being a Parkland course this present a huge operational challenge at this time of year. Priority is given to drainage ditches to remove leaves to aid drainage.
- Tree Work
