This upcoming week we will continue to focus on improving the condition of all playing areas. Tees, fairways, roughs and bunkers will receive their usual maintenance. Fairways will be sprayed with fertiliser and iron. Greens will also receive a foliar application to assist recovery from the increased play. With not much rain forecast, much focus will be given to the moisture levels on all areas, with specific attention given to the greens. We want to keep the greens rolling fast and firm and this is mainly achieved by correct moisture management and not over-watering which is very tempting during warmer weather. We want to keep the greens lean by only watering the areas that need it! Other general works this week will include maintenance of the small ditches, irrigation system repairs, machine repairs and sharpening of the cutting units.
This will be my last update before the weekend so we hope that everyone has a ’glad midsommar’!
