The 7th Tee renewal has begun on the Upper. Lots of scrub, small trees and 2 larger trees removed to enable new tee construction to take place. Leveling has begun and should be finished by the end of the week ready for turf early next week. The Tee will have complete new irrigation including new sprinklers and will have a playing area over 50% larger than the old Tee.
Other areas to be turfed in this phase are finish the 1st Tee, 17th and 18th collar Upper and the surround to the rear of the 18th Upper.
This photo is actually the 14th Tee Upper last week. It has just had its 2nd cut and is awaiting some much needed rain in the next few days.
All greens have had a light V-cut this week to clean out some dead material followed by a topdress of half a ton of sand per green. This will be the last topdress of the season and brings the total sand applied to 110 ton per course.
Growth rates have been phenomenal in the last few weeks so cutting grass is a priority this week. Once we hit next week the plan is slitting fairways again, deep tine tee tops, walk offs, path ends and onto deep tining greens at the beginning of November.
