GREENS REPORT August 21

The course is looking fantastic! All areas of the course have been kept to desired heights with greens remaining at 4mm.

As we have just seen a cool change, this week the rough mowers can get a little break, allowing more time for the ground staff to begin winter projects such as re surfacing certain tees, continue with cart path repairs and attention to broken storm water pipes that have needed repairing.

All fairways will receive a fertiliser application this week and a granular application to the tees.

Applications of fungicides and insecticides were applied more than normal as we have seen more than normal fungal diseases apparel throughout courses on the coast.

It is a very stressful time for couch 328 greens especially greens in shade, with more rain predicted and a cool change in the weather greens will be protected by rolling more instead of mowing and fungicides applied when needed.

The greens are very healthy and I am confident we will get through winter without over sowing any greens again this year.

An application of herbicide will begin this week to all greens, followed by a granule potassium fertiliser that will be washed in with the predicted rain that is forecasting for the next week!

A pre-emergent herbicide will be applied this week to help illuminate any winter grass arising through winter.

All dam walls and tee banks have been snipped with the everglades getting attention over the next month; we will continue to ask if any members would like to come out for a day to help with the clean up next month.

As mentioned in the golf shop, all bunkers are now in play. This means there is no preferred lie: all bunkers will be raked by course staff every morning and we ask members to remember their general practice of smoothing out their lie after their shot with the rakes supplied.

All NTPs are back in action and pool noodles removed from cups.

The greens and course throughout is in great shape and I thank members for their support.

The steps leading up to the Men’s 12th tee are loose, and will be rectified.

Happy golfing and hopefully not too much rain!
