Lots going on at the moment on the golf course.  Upper greens have been tined and dressed to further help fill in summer damage and in the main are looking and playing much better.  Lower greens are scheduled for early next week.  Greens have received their first fungicide application and are looking very healthy coming into a difficult high disease period. 

All Upper tees and poor Lower tees have been heavily dressed and fed and are beginning to fill in.  16th path is now finished with mats moved on both 16 and 17 Upper ready for winter.

Mat moved
Next on the agenda for the digger is the 10th path Upper.  This will extend from the tee all the way to the right behind the green and join up with the 11th path.

Path re-routed
Once this is finished we are beginning tee renovations with a number of rebuilds and relevelling on the cards.

Greens are still recovering after intense dry spell.  This week we have scarified and seeded bare parts on poor greens.  Verti-cut and double cut all greens followed by dressing and a concoction of fertilzers.  They have responded well in the last few weeks and in the main are filling in.

 Construction work is beginning around the course as the dry weather continues.  The path on 16th and 17th is being rebuilt leveled and extended.  Next on the list will be an extension to the 10th path on the Upper and a completely new path around the 12 tee Lower.

Next week Tees and Aprons are being fed with cutting going on around the course as greens are left alone this week to recover.
