Winter Projects 2020
Although lockdown is the last thing we would want as a club, it will give us time to get
stuck into both courses. From Monday 9th November we will start with winter work on the 2nd hole.
Hopefully, when we are allowed to reopen this hole, it will be transformed and will receive
the same reception as when our 9th hole was reshaped.
Leaves, as usual, cause all golfers a real nightmare. We will of course try to make sure that
as many leaves are picked up. We are hopeful that many more will come down before
Greens: Verti-drain all greens.
Verti-Draining helps alleviate waterlogging and deep aerates the ground to promote
healthy growth. The ‘Verti-Drain’ decompacts soil on greens by inserting equally spaced
holes in the turf which allow water and air to filter through to the grass roots.
