Well I am pleased to report that the greens renovations were completed late last night. After a 4.00am start, Monday was very frustrating ,owing to the weather and that put us behind schedule.
Another early start , a late finish and some great work by my team we managed to catch up and get it all the intensive work done yesterday.
Each green was then topdressed with between 2.5-3 ton of dry Sand and Soil Amendment
Ready for brushing with our sweep and fill brush similar to the video below
An overseed and a jolly good iron was next
Further Brushing before we watered it all in for 3 minutes each green.
And that’s a wrap for Tuesday night and home time for a well earned rest !
Well Done my Team! Great work!
This morning all the greens got a nice organic feed to help with recovery and this rain will help wash everything in.
The Golf Ball is not rolling too badly, considering the heavy disruption we have done as you can see below. Jack Winer and our Captain played late yesterday afternoon and Jack said they were not bad at all .
With the right weather and a bit more TLC the greens should be fine within a couple of weeks . I am sure any of you that have played any other courses are very aware we are all up to the same type of work on our Greens.
Things will get back to normal next week on the rest of the Course with regards to cutting and presentation. Though I do have a few staff off the latter part of the week as Ben my Deputy gets married , I’m sure you all will wish him well and the best of luck , ( Sarah his partner will need it putting up with him!!)
That’s it for now, thank you for all those golfers that showed co-operation and patience with these essential Greens Renovations
ENJOY YOUR COURSE ENJOY YOUR CLUB, REMEMBER………IT’S YOURS!!
