The logs had to be moved quickly and without causing too much damage to the course. Therefore, we have created a number of tidily stacked log piles in and around the woodland between 4, 6 and 7. They are out of play, have been moved away from holes 4 & 7 and will serve as habitats for insects and small animals.
It is interesting to see how the area between the 4th and 7th has developed over the last few weeks. Enjoy (or not!) the photos below:
We hope to clear the remaining debris next week. Most of the logs that remain are just too heavy to lift between us and so we will use the bucket of our front loader tractor to assist.
We have also turfed over the 4th fairway bunker and it looks pretty ok really.
All greens have been cut this week. Greens 1-7 and the chipping area green are in fairly decent order. Greens 8 and 9 are showing the effects of a wet winter due to their poorer drainage capabilities.
It was a welcome dry week - the first we have had all winter. Better late than never! Hopefully, we will get the chance to get some mowing done next week as long as it remains dry. We will also re-turf the 7th white tee next week.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the weather/your golf/both!
