Over the course of this week the green staff are carrying out some refinement work throughout the Dunluce and Valley links by applying graminicide.
Graminicide is applied to the leaf of the turf and selectively removes coarse grasses. Our turf is predominantly fine leafed fescue but this treatment assists in improving consistency, especially when putting from surrounds.
Areas to be treated include;
Dunluce fairways, semi rough and green surrounds.
Valley greens and surrounds
Some slight thinning of turf will be apparent through the Valley surrounds but overseeding will be carried out tomorrow to allow germination and establishment of new seedlings to coincide with removal of rye grass meaning that fescue will fill the gaps left in the sward as rye grass dies.
