Spring Maintenance Week

A week after our spring maintenance and the course is starting to recover very well. We applied more sand to the greens and approaches in the week than ever before and we are already seeing the benefits, the surfaces have firmed up nicely and the greens in particular and playing very well considering the work carried out.

We applied in total approximately 70 tonnes of sand (of which around 50 went on the greens). All greens were Verti-drained and a select few wetter greens were also hollowcored – 11,12 & 14. The greens staff put a fantastic video together of day 1 of maintenance week – click here for a great behind the scenes  look at what went on.

The putting surfaces are looking very strong with no bare areas and importantly for us no sign of disease pressure. We are now a little reliant on the good old British weather to give us a little help to warm things up and kick start the growing season. Fingers crossed we get a little of that Mediterranean heat promised to us over the Easter period.

Happy Easter and enjoy your golf………
