Course Update

Tree transplanting work was successfully carried out on Monday with 5 trees being moved using a large tree spade.

The trees that were chosen for transplantation were 3 Pines, Conifer and a Lime tree, all located on the fringes of the rough.

With the expertise of "Civic Trees" and aided by the greenstaff the trees were moved to more prominent positions between the 9th and 10th fairways.

The trees were positioned to enhance the dog leg on the 9th and help shape the 10th hole when viewed from the tee.

Aftercare will involve attaching cables for support and watering regularly to encourage the roots to anchor the trees into position.

If your ball should land within the support cables please take a free drop.

Thank you to John Worrell and the 200 club for generating the funds for this work to be carried out.

Greens

The height of cut on the greens has been lowered to 3mm (summer height) this setting will remain for the remainder of the season.

This week the greens have been verti-cut twice to help remove thatch and broad leafed grasses followed by a growth retardant for seed head control.

Chipping green area

Grass coverage has flourished since the cores were applied 5 weeks ago and it will not be too long before it requires its first cut.

The green will now be regularly top dressed with sand which will smooth out any imperfections and create a much firmer surface..

This is a fantastic technique to establish a green for very little money, to use greens turf on this project would of cost over £1500

Opening still on track for August.

Weeds

A selective herbicide was sprayed last week across the course to combat weeds including Dandelion, Daisy and Clover.

A more intensive spraying programme will be carried out on the fairways as weeds appear throughout the summer.

This week the greenstaff will be preparing the course for the clubs first major event…. Charity Day.

As the competition takes place on a Bank Holiday Monday the greenstaff will be working throughout the weekend to present the golf course to the best possible condition.

If playing I hope you enjoy the day and the course.
