A really busy and productive week on the course depite some early morning frosts.
have dug out and shaped all the bunkers we are renovating this winter
(10 in all), as we don't want to lay any turf beyond the end of
February. The remaining turfing should be complete on Monday and the
final shaping a few weeks after that. The edging, cutting and topping up
of the other bunkers will be finished sometime next week also.
managed to top-dress the greens over 2 afternoons and followed this up
with a brushing and a pass over with the turf iron to smooth and help
close over the aeration holes. We plan to apply some liquid nutrient to
the greens early next week to further speed their recovery.
fairway aeration continues and is a few weeks away from completion. When
this is finished, we will move onto the tees and approaches.
weather holds, we plan to start some work on the 5th hole, re-profiling
the carry and improving drainage. The remaining tree stumps will be dug
out as well and the holes repaired.
Despite the recent poor weather, the winter league was completed last week, a minor miracle I think.
Enjoy the sunshine this weekend.
