“This week we shall be starting to repair all the worn and weak areas of turf around the course by seeding and topdressing. This should bring the these areas back up to a good quality turf by increasing the sward density.
We will be fertilising the semi areas in front of the tongues to try and make them more visible and thicken them up.
Last week we sprayed for fusarium on the greens – as you may know by now, this is a turf fungus/disease and we are coming into the time of year where it is most active. This treatment might result in a small amount of scarring – this is just a short-term problem at this time of time of year provided we keep on top of it from now until Spring.
Also this week we will begin to benefit from the purchase of a new Toro 3250 greens mower, which will replace one of our old mowers. We are delighted with it as it is state of the art and should give us a good few years of top service. I would like to thank the owners for purchasing this for us and of course for you, the members of the club.”
