Greenkeepers have been working hard this winter building new bunkers, removing bushes, aerating surfaces, turfing and assisting in the construction works.
More recently the Dunluce greens have been over-seeded.
The greens were tined with a 10mm diameter tine to a depth of 10mm. Seed was then broadcast, greens were dressed and brushed in using an AstroTurf mat. We applied 40 tons of sand to the Dunluce greens which will again improve surface firmness and lower moisture content favouring the fescue sward.
The idea was to get this work done a little earlier than normal. This will mean that the greens will be is good condition for the start of the season as members and guests will be playing some temporary greens for the next number of weeks.
