Course update - Jan 2016 - Richard dorrington

Happy New Year on behalf of all of the Greens Staff, let’s hope that 2016 brings the longevity of season that 2015 provided.

In the past few months we have carried out the following tasks:

Greens/Approaches:

We have slit five greens in the last week this is to aid surface water drainage. They are 7,8,11,14,16. All greens have been tined.

Tees:

Current height of cut at 14mm.  All tees have been hollow tined, top dressed, over seeded and fed.

Winter tees:

All winter tees have been re levelled Rubber matting has been placed/extended around all tees.  Anti-slip strips have been applied to all sleeper surrounds.  A new winter tee has been placed adjacent to the ladies 16th tee.  4th winter tee area has been landscaped to divert the washings of the path contaminating the mat.

Fairways:

Good quality sward, current height of cut 22mm.  Verti-draining has been done on selective areas.

Bunkers:

We have finished the maintenance on bunkers where drainage has been installed. Two bunkers have had new drainage installed.

Other areas:

We continue to apply worm suppressant to selective areas. Leaf collection is ongoing. The secondary drainage has been installed. Unfortunately with the weather we are experiencing at present the drainage is struggling to cope with the quantity and frequency of rain and is holding onto the water in the top profile, this will improve over time and we expect these areas to work as well as previous installations like the 1st.

Seasons Greetings

Richard Dorrington - Head Greenkeeper


Winter Conditions - course chairman

Dear All

We have reached that time of the year where the wet conditions lead to unnecessary damage unless we are all vigilant. Can we please ask that those who have winter tyres now adopt them. They save appreciably on mud smears. Can we also please request that where there are paths near greens that all wheeled vehicles ( trolleys, single seaters and buggies) STAY on the paths.

 Please also look for pitch marks as the greens are now very damp and almost any shot landing on the green is causing a mark. 

 We are aiming to leave the course open in almost all conditions but can you please be aware that when frosty you pick up lumps on the spikes of your shoes. As the greens soften up these lumps  can sometimes cause quite severe indentations. Please check your shoes before walking onto the greens in those conditions and knock the lumps off your spikes before walking onto the green. 

 James Lamond - Greens Chairman
