Another cracker of a morning. There is already quite a stiff breeze blowing which will make for tricky scoring conditions for today's 9 hole comp.

Stroke

21/05/2019

What an incredible start to the day. Conditions are currently absolutely perfect for golf and today's Stroke competetion. Despite the work that Michael and his team are carrying out on the greens this will still go ahead. As you will see from the picture of one of the greens that has been completed the surfaces haven't been affected by this work, in fact we were being told yesterday that they were already even better than they had been!

Light Aeration Work

20/05/2019

Michael and his team are taking the opportunity to carry out some very light aeration work to the greens.

This shouldn't affect the surfaces significantly and once the work is completed will further improve drainage/water penetration and improve the air quality in the root zone allowing the grass to grow more healthy.
The top dressing will smooth the surfaces in general and fill in the holes created by the aerator.
All greens will be completed by Wednesday at the latest.


Junior Match

20/05/2019

Relatively quite tee today with no reservations or bookings. The juniors have a tough away match tonight against Haggs Castle as they go for 5 wins out of 5. All the very best to them.
