GREENS REPORT March 21

MARCH 21

The course is looking picture perfect!

With this month, a main focus is our cart paths. Thanks to Dave who is a part of our greens team, and each week he will be adding a new screened road base mix to the paths.

You may have already noticed the 1st and 8th and the path around the clubhouse is completed and we are very happy with this new material that may be the fix for our steep pathways.

We will be continuing throughout the course achieving a good surface to all of our paths over the next two months.

The greens are in very good shape: exactly 5 weeks post renovations the recovery and health of this surface couldn’t be better. The small sprayed out areas from the removal of carpet grass has been easily visible and have recovered well: this has been a huge factor of applying the right amendments to the soil profile to our greens over the last 4 years.

Although some levels of potassium are still low in our soil reports, with time these levels are coming back to a desired reading, therefore the grass surface on top will show especially when we go into cooler conditions where some of our greens struggle in the shade.

We are still under covid rules regarding flags: no rakes in bunkers etc., and the ground staff will continue to rake bunkers once or twice a week and ask players to smooth out your footsteps the best you can with your club/feet. Noodles in hole cups will remain until changes made from Golf Australia.

Tees and green surrounds have been spot sprayed for crows foot and some greens have showed some small crows foot that has appeared this week: we will be hand weeding these areas to assure a clean surface. Certain tee areas will be resurfaced, and a report will be issued on what tees in next month’s report.

The fairways are still being mowed every week and we have raised the height to 16mm.

An application will be applied to green surrounds and tees this month as we prepare to move closer to a cool change. With a couple of new staff members we will continue to maintain the course, with attending to some extra areas that we normally struggle to get to due to the excessive mowing.

I hope all members are enjoying our fantastic course this month and we hope to hold this condition throughout the year.

    You would think that the Greens Superintendent would have had a number of aces, as he knows every little feature of our greens, and where the hole has been placed for the day. But Andy was truly excited about this ace.
