GREENS REPORT May 21

A very good month with weather, although we had steady rainfall at the start of the month and that has caused the course to have preferred lie on. The last two weeks the sun has been out and has been a much better result than previous years: therefore the staff have started attending to winter type jobs as the rough mowing has come to a halt due to the cool change.

This month we have:

Snipped, shaped and filled in all bunkers to the course with new sand.

The 12th steps have been fixed.

Continued work across our cart paths.

All hedges and gardens have been maintained.

All fairways and green surrounds had a fertiliser application just in time for the club champs.

All dam walls have been snipped and all black line markings have been done with general GUR areas.

The Everglades were cleaned up, thanks to Dave! We will continue a working bee for the next clean up in winter with a burn off planned for our rubbish piles.

Greens are in a great condition considering how much shade they are dealing with in May, and on certain days we will rest greens from mowing and roll more. This will help with the shade issue by relieving some stress. All flags, cups and bunkers are back to normal so we have added new cup liners to the holes.

There has been a lot of golf played this year and we have noticed more divots to our tees.The course staff repair these divots weekly on Thursdays.

If I could please ask our members not to practise off blue marker plates on social days, or if you do, could you please repair your divots as we try to save these areas for our comp days.

The first round of the club champs are underway and the sun was out, and I’m sure the members are enjoying the course as much as I am.

The ground staff will continue work throughout the course over the next month, with yearly maintained work on machinery, snipping banks and tee batters, and trees trimmed throughout the course, and all general areas. Tees will be fertilised again towards the end of the month with the rough kept at desired heights.

    SUPERINTENDENT ACES

    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.
