All fairways and rough have been cut this week as well as the practise range. We will now send our fairway units away for a re-grind.
Luckily but, at the same time, unluckily, the spring weather has not truly kicked in. So whilst all the golf course has been cut and we have a few days for the units to be re-ground, we could also do with some consistently warmer temperatures to perk up growth on the golf course.
The recent frosts are not overly helpful as they keep the soil temperatures that bit colder which subsequently restricts growth.
You will start to see that we are now addressing numerous smaller jobs that just need tidying and finishing off from the winter course improvement work.
I am pleased that the golf course is not far off how I'd like it to be as we approach April.
We have made steady progress with the new bunkering on holes 1 and 2. The new green side bunker on hole 2 has a turf base. Above, Ryan is spraying the grass with glyphosphate, a total non selective herbicide. Once the grass has died, we will add sand.
Both should have be completely sanded by next week and we will also have made good progress with the green side bunker on hole 4.
We also verti drained the greens this week to 9 inch depth. They are now firming up nicely and new root growth is excellent. We will give them another light topdressing soon and a light application of fertiliser to encourage growth.
Have a great weekend and enjoy your golf!
