#ukstorm2013

Following Mondays storm the clean up continues. We had 10 trees down that we cut and remove from the course another two larger trees are to be felled and cleared by our tree surgeon this week.
I think we actually got lucky compared to some….. Over the two days (Sunday Monday) we had 36.5mm of rain and very strong gusts of wind.

The course is back to normal now and lets hope for a few more nice autumn days before the winter arrives.

One of the many casualties

Fairway aeration

We have started the aeration work on our fairways with the verti-drain. We are running  20mm tines to a depth of 160mm. This will help drainage and also releave compaction in high traffic areas
The process is taking around 2 hours per hole so please be patient whilst greenstaff are working on the hole you are playing.
Many thanks.

What conifers?

Work has started around the 1st tee. Stage one is the removal of the conifers that run the length of the pro-shop. Once these are removed we will have a much clearer view of what shape the new beds should take….

Were back!!

After a long busy summer  we are back blogging with info on projects being carried out around the course.

We intend to post short articles every couple of weeks showing how the winter projects are coming along and any other points of interest.
