GREENS REPORT October 2020

Club Championships are under way with two more rounds left to play, and the greens staff were busy last month preparing the course for this event.

All dam walls, tee batters, banks and drains were trimmed, followed by line marking to the hazard areas.

Despite no rain, greens, fairways and tees were fertilised, keeping a bit of colour throughout the course under very dry conditions.

Whilst the course was struggling from no rain, and a limited water supply from our irrigation system, myself and the team were very thankful for the extra help from a couple of members that have been hand watering our tees.

This was set up by Richard Meiers who has supplied us with a tank that outputs 1000 litres. He and others have spent numerous hours keeping the struggled areas alive, while the main pump to our irrigation was designated to the greens for night time watering.

Considering we have had no rain at all, the greens have recovered very well from renovations, and the heights of cut have slowly come down to desired summer height of 3.2mm, and with rolling the greens twice a week.

During the Club Championships the greens are being cut and rolled each Saturday with holes changed.

Following the championships the greens staff will assess some bare areas on 7th, 15th and 18th greens. These greens were heavily sprayed at a high rate of herbicide to remove a large quantity of carpet grass.

These circled areas have not been ignored, with plans of returfing any areas that haven’t resurfaced fully from the application.

With members being patient and understanding of the process of removing this foreign grass from our greens, there is a long term goal and that is to have a better and cleaner putting surface.

We will also be attending to tee areas after the championships. These areas that have suffered through winter and with the last month of hot days, not to mention the amount of golf play that has been played, assessment of all tees and any that need returfing will be carried out in November .

The 4th, 8th and 18th tees were resurfaced last month due to the same issue.

Moving through to next month, greens staff will continue general weekly maintenance, but will also focus on repairs to tees, greens and cart paths.
