Tree Planting

Planting next to the 13th

Four copses have been planted at the 13th. We have also underplanted between the 5th, 6th and 7th holes

Traffic Control

This is why we use posts and rope!

Sign and a white line, makes little difference!

Without traffic management ie. posts and rope, people will keep on using the same route until it is worn away to nothing and then complain about it!!

Another example of walking through a white line, so much so that the line has been worn away. I don't like using posts and rope or hoops, but I hate worn and muddy areas far more!

Moss Control

As moss encroachment was a major concern last winter, we are doing some work early to try and eradicate the moss before the weather gets damper and colder, ie weather that favours moss development.

The greens were sprayed two weeks ago with a product which inhibits the moss.

On Monday we will lightly scarify the greens.

Followed up by a light top dress and brush.

Finally they will be sprayed with some nitrogen and seaweed to aid the recovery.

Scarifying and blowing the debris straight behind

The green after scarification, with good growth this should heal very quickly

 

Bee Hive!!

Our bee hive arrived by post!

We have received a bee hive as part of a package with wild flower seeds, these have been sown on an area in the clear fell. Read More »
