It has been a busy week. We have worked well to get the course prepared for Masters weekend. James has done a great job getting all the bunkers edged. They look really sharp and well defined.
We have really hit the mowing this week too. All fairways, approaches and surrounds have been cut a number of times to make sure they look tight and well presented.
The greens were groomed on Monday and double cut. Wednesday & Thursday, they were rolled and have been double cut this Friday. They will also get double cut both days for the Masters competition. They look really good, are firm and should putt really well.
Please keep on top of pitch marks. Some greens resemble dartboards at the moment. Whilst we can repair pitch marks on occasion, it would help us a lot if members could repair their own pitch mark plus one more. Thank you.
We took the opportunity to get the autumn renovation carried out to the putting green and chipping green this week. The putting green was hollow cored, top dressed, scarifier, brushed and over seeded. The chipping green was just hollow cored and top dressed. All remains greens will be renovated next week to varying degrees.
This essential work should keep them dry and firm going into autumn and winter. We appreciate your understanding in respect of this work. The greens will be better for it afterward.
