Greens Maintenance

On Tuesday 9th August work will commence on the greens.

The work will consist of veritdraining across the putting surfaces creating holes 9-12 inches deep and 16mm in diameter. The holes will then be filled using a straight sand mix, brushed into the holes using a specially designed brush/sweeping piece of equipment. Weather permitting this exercise should only take 2-3 days. This may however change if conditions are wet.

This work is being completed earlier than usual in the hope that conditions will be far better than later in the year to aid in a much quicker recovery of the playing surface. 

This work is necessary to improve and maintain firmer and better draining putting surfaces. It also helps to reduce organic matter which contributes to softer surfaces, more susceptible to disease.
