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.
Reinstate water damaged paths and roadways,

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

Further work is required to increase the size of the practice area beside the churchyard.

The tees are due to be Verti-cored and top dressed, this process is very much weather dependant.
