Irrigation is the main focus on the course at the moment.  The weather has certainly helped with a cooler month in June/July so far.  New valves, as can be seen below are being systematically replaced as they break,  each time system flow and efficiency around the course improves.

We now have good pressure across most greens which will mean better and more consistent greens through peak season.  This in turn will allow us to be more aggresive in pushing quality in the coming years and also pay more attention to neglected Tees and Approaches.

Pressure and flow improvements

With the obvious delays earlier in the year everything is well behind so the new 14th Tee is still not even turfed.  We are now at that point but it's not going to be in play until late summer now.

Whilst grass growth is slower we are cracking on with pathways.  They are being extended, moved and topped up.  This will enable us to join up holes and float over known wet areas.
