Tees upgrades

Over the course of the next few months we will be doing some upgrade work on the new Mens and Ladies 10th, 14th and 16th tees. The work done includes stripping off the current turf, re-levelling the base and then top dressing with sand before adding new turf from various fairways around the course. During this time play will revert to the original location of each tee until the work is completed.

We will be calling for volunteers to help with the levelling of sand and roll out of turf like was done on the new Ladies 14th tee. I hope we can get as many helpers as we did last time.

Green improvements

Many of you will have noticed that our greens have improved markedly over recent months. This is the result of Verti Draining plus spraying of unwanted weeds and moss. In regard to the moss we will be continuing with and intensive program to remove it completely so some areas will have to be re-sanded and sown once it dies off. Members are asked to bear with us during this period for repairs like this can take quite some time to come back to normal.

Stump removal program

As we have many stumps left around the course from trees that have either died of fallen over we plan to gradually remove them all. Members will observe drums around those to be removed which will be done by burning them out. Once gone each area around and including the removed stump will be filled with top soil and returned to its normal state.
