We have been rather fortunate lately with the weather conditions which has resulted in some great recovery and rooting on the newly laid areas of turf, including the work carried out on the 1st and 18th holes. This has meant that I have been happy enough to open these holes earlier than first anticipated. I will, however, be monitoring the wear and tear on the newly laid grass paths daily, and this could potentially result in a short-term closure of these holes to allow some recovery again.

There has been a massive amount of work done over the winter and I am extremely proud of how our team has progressed. I would also like to thank all of the membership for your support and understanding over the period. We do still have small amounts of “tidying” to do on some of these jobs which we will continue to tick off over the coming weeks.

Regarding the areas of gorse removal, you will notice bare ground has been left - these will not all be left as bare sand or soil. Select areas will be used as heather regeneration which we will be spreading heather brashings over them. Other areas will have a combination of marram grass sprigged into them and seed also to leave them as a natural rough effect.

The course condition is coming along nicely after the winter. The greens are coping well after some disease pressure over Christmas which led to some small scars in places. The next few weeks will see us do some more turf conditioning in the way of sand top dressings to help smooth the surface coupled along with feeding the greens with small amounts of nitrogen - this will all help get them ready for the season ahead.
