lots of overseeing is being carried out over both the Dunluce and the valley Courses with greens surrounds and all grass walkways recieving treatment. This will heal quickly with little disruption to play.
The green surrounds have higher percentages of annual meadow grass which could be seen in thinned surfaces during winter months. This was largely due to excessive wear from turning of greens machines. Greater care is now being taken when mowing greens and the introduction of more fescue will provide a firmer and a better surface year round.
Greens speeds are good for the time of year with an average of 9′ 1 being recorded. Greens are becoming truer every day as maintenance treatments begin to intensify.
Dunluce Greens 1,3 & 4 were over seeded last week but putting surfaces remain true.
