GREENS REPORT December 21

It is definitely growing season! The course staff have been running the rough mowers constantly every day, and this process to complete all of the rough takes around four days with both mowers going non stop. As the staff start on one end of the course you can almost see the grass growing behind you. We cannot lower the mowers any more as this causes scalping and so is set at the lowest height possible.

Green surrounds are also growing rapidly, therefore we are using our fairway mower that is a little lower in height to keep the surrounds down throughout the week.

All areas of dams and drains etc need attention with snipping. This is not forgotten and will be attended to after Christmas as we are purely focusing on main priorities including rough, tees, fairways, greens and daily set-up for competitions, mowing, rolling, bunkers hole changing etc.

Greens have been groomed this week as the 328 greens have had more thatch through this summer period. This has also caused some minor ERI disease only in a couple of greens, and is currently being treated with a selective fungicide and being monitored daily.

The course is looking great and with the rain received over the month, there have been many positives for our course.

All our water-holding dams are full! This means we will have plenty of water to keep up with tees and greens. Considering fairways have no irrigation and are only revived by the rain and mowed twice a week, the fairways look great and healthy.

Once again the weather conditions are hot and humid and this means it is perfect growing conditions. The boys are giving the rough mowers plenty of work and doing their best to keep the rough down as much as possible.

On behalf of the greens staff, I wish all of our members a safe and Merry Christmas.
