Please see below an explanation on our forthcoming greens maintenance start.
Greens maintenance plan w/c 26th July:
• Scarify (10mm depth)
• Verti-drain (deep tine aeration approx. 9” depth)
• Hollow core (shallow aeration 2” depth)
• Top-dress (approx. 25t)
Recovery should be fairly quick at this time of year and we would expect the greens surface to be back to normal within a week or so. This work as always though, is weather permitting.
12th green drainage Mon 26th/Tues 27th July:
The 12th green is having drainage installed by contractors to coincide with our normal greens maintenance. We have decided on a system called ‘Passive Capillary’ drainage.
This a relatively new, but very efficient form of greens drainage and one which causes very little disruption to the putting surface and therefore enables recovery very quickly.
We are very confident this will give us a dry/firm green all year round, without having to resort to using a temporary green for much of the winter as is often the case.
