Winter work update

Work around the course continues as we have a nice break from the freezing or wet weather. While we are enjoying this dry spell we have taken the opportunity to brush the fairways, this helps remove any wormcasts and also helps define the fairways over the winter period when cutting has been reduced.

Work is also progressing nicely on the heather regeneration work between the 8th and 10th. The main task at the moment is still the removal of the silver birch.

The final project we are working on is the 1st tee. This is really starting to take shape now and with the planting almost complete we will move onto the path next week and then lay the turf as soon as the path material is in. The silver birch that are being removed from between the 8th and 10th will be chipped to provide the mulch for the new beds. The main purpose of the mulch is to keep the heat in the ground and give the new plants the best possible start.
