Following the worst winter for over 200 years, many areas around the course struggled to cope with the continuos pounding without any rest bite. These areas have been the main focus of attention in recent weeks now conditions are favourable for areas to be treated so they can recover and develop. Areas are treated in relevance of priority. Greens, collars and areas directly around the greens are the areas of most importance. Areas of lesser priority such as areas in the rough will be treated if significant enough to require attention. Not all areas will be treated as this is not practically achievable, nor necessary. Small areas with recover naturally as growth increases. Many areas have been either turfed or seeded.
