Sunshine at last!


Greenkeeping must be the best job in the world when the weather is, as it has been this week.

The sun has shone for most of the week and yesterday some of us were working in polo shirts, unusual for this time of year.

Even though the weather has been so good, we plan to switch play to some of our winter teeing positions from Monday next week, which will give our summer tees some much needed rest.

Bunkers on the 1st have all been either re-built or edged. 

Bunkers on the 2nd hole are to be done next week.

Greenside on the 15th has been revetted and turfed, the base of the bunker will be dished next week before adding sand.


Most of our repair work has been carried out to grass paths and the remaining areas which have been stripped of turf will be finished using a harder wearing imported fescue/rye turf.

Construction work is going well with all of the bushes now removed between old 17th & 18th. The pile of earth which you will see is to be re-spread once sub grade levels are achieved.

Simon and Trevor have been working hard with our rough management, cutting and collecting and also completing our last bits of seeding work on Dunluce. The weather has been so mild that soil temperatures remain warm enough for good germination so instead of having seed stored over the winter we have over-seeded all of our new fairways and green surrounds using our dimple seeder.
