Golfers may notice regularly spaced slits in the turf on the links, this is caused by the tractor mounted seeder pictured below. The slits are made by a row of disks and the seed is inserted from the disk and also rolled in one easy operation. These areas on pathways and driving range tee have also been fertilised with a 6 month controlled release fertiliser. This can be seen in a small round prill spread across the ground. This fertiliser is required on grass paths to cope with the intensive wear received through the playing season. Tees have also received a lighter controlled release granular fertiliser with over-seeding of tees planned for next week.
