We have been busy making the most of some dry days by hollow coring and seeding tees and grass paths on both courses.
Cores removed have been utilised filling and repairing areas of tented village and road edges had become sunken due to heavy equipment during the build and de-rig.
Valley 2nd fairway now versus below picture in August. It’s still recovering slowly but we forget what it was like immediately after the media centre was removed.
The old 17th where the Open shop was has been re-seeded and has now germinated but again recovery will take us into next season.
Dunluce greens were over-seeded and top-dressed last week but surfaces are back to normal now.
Our annual Greenkeeping outing was last Friday at Ballycastle Golf Club, my first time there and what a brilliant course, the views are spectacular and a great day was had by all so a big thank you to them.
