Greens Maintenance Week March 2016

Greens Maintenance during this period is to focus on removing organic matter in the upper 15mm of the soil profile.
This will also include two passes using pencil tines to a depth of 4-5 Inches, one pass before and one after the scarifying and a straight sand top-dressing.

This process creates very little disruption to the playing surface, which is the preferred current policy the Club have adopted for Spring Maintenance in recent years.

Also during this week we are verti-draining the aprons, around the greens, tees and fairways. 

This form of aeration will help improve drainage, rooting, and generally improve the ground conditions after the long wet winter.

The tees are also being overseeded ready for the ground temperatures to rise for germination and grass cover, moving into the summer period.
