This week we have tried our best to tidy a few areas on the golf course. All the areas where old turf had been stored have now been cleared & tidied.
Going into the new year, we can just focus on laying out the remaining turf. This arrives in the first week of January. Any help would be greatly appreciated, particularly if we are hindered by any more wet weather.
The greens last week and this were sprayed with a preventative fungicide, whilst this week, they were sprayed with a dew dispersant. All of this spraying is carried out as part of our overall disease management strategy.
Moisture that sits resides in the thatch layer contributes to fusarium outbreak, particularly when the weather is mild and affected species (annual meadow grass, bent grass) are present.
We want to give golfers the best playing surfaces possible and, hopefully, our greens have been well received this autumn and winter.
Ryan & James have made great work of presenting the bunkers that are still in play. Each one has been edged, raked, weeded and had the leaf debris removed. They look really good so well done to the lads!
Have a great Christmas and all the best for 2016.
Next week, I will review 2015 in an extended blog!!
