We all know the course like every other in the area is very very wet. However we are open to play unlike most in the area. Be careful pick your spots to walk. I have attached to this email news from the Greenkeepers shed on what is going to happen going forward with the course
NEWS FROM THE SHEDS. NOVEMBER 2019
(CHANGES TO THE COURSE 2020)
All fairways will be extended and widened as far and as practical as possible.
Rough grasses will be cut down as low as the cutting machinery allows without “scalping”
The rough cut will extend from the fairway edges to the tree lines only,
The grasses inside the tree lines will be cut separately every two or three weeks. It will not be allowed to grow long.
All growth inside ditches both sides and bottoms will be sprayed to kill all growth up to and including the shoulder of the ditches to the point where cutters reach.
The bunkers on the 7th,8th,11th(R/Hand) and 13th which are perpetually wet will be replaced by mounds whose grasses will be allowed to grow to natural height as it will be on all existing mounds.
All bankings other than those surrounded by red stakes will be kept low by machinery or strimming.
The base of all trees will be sprayed all round.
I hope this meets with members approval, any questions, please contact me. J.W. (Greens)
