Course Update – May 2015
The course is in excellent condition heading into the cooler months. The Santa Ana fairways and tees have now been sprayed with iron and magnesium to help keep their colour during dormancy.
The greens have responded well to the recent coring with excellent growth and health. Frequent verti draining with mini tines and sand dusting will continue over the cooler months to allow further aeration and drainage. This will be completed when the weather allows and will cause minimal disruption.
The 15th bunker work has been completed. Turf sods have been laid around the left hand edge to reduce erosion of the poor soils and contamination. More sand has also been added.
The Monday volunteers are regular and continue to be a great help. Most recent jobs completed have been the removal of selected trees on the 6th to allow sunlight on the men’s tee, removal of dangerous limbs in the rough, filling holes on the cart tracks, clearing next to the practice fairway in preparation for a turf nursery, whipper snipping, rough mowing and getting firewood for the clubhouse. Thank you to all involved and keep up the great work.
Thank you to Keith Godridge who has been spraying the paspalum around the course. This has been a massive task and has taken many days complete. It will be ongoing so thank you Keith.
Please remember to fix your own pitch mark and any others you may see.
