With the golf course really starting to firm up with the dry weather, the greenkeepers have verti-drained the greens with small needles and then lightly scarified them a few weeks later. This has helped the grass roots stay well hydrated in the well above average winter temperatures we have been experiencing. Some of the older greens that have struggled through the early winter season have started to come back with stronger growth thanks to these works.
Another task that has been recently completed has been the coring of fairways again and the ground staff are ready to pounce with fertilizer as soon as some decent rain is forecasted. Let’s hope we get a decent drop in the weeks leading into Spring so the course holds onto its beautiful lush green look. And I’m sure a lot of golfers are looking forward to seeing the gardens shine as well.
