Apologies for the break in posting but I was fortunate enough to be a guest of John Deere Ltd at Arundel Hills GC last week for the final of their Trans Tasman Challenge. Considering we have similar budgets and staffing levels I came away fairly pleased with what we produce on our 36 hole complex. Fortunately the golf was a modified 3 ball ambrose event and I had a couple of handy partners!!
A fairly busy week coming up with a number of spray operations planned for the greens including some growth regulator on the West greens. The River greens will be lightly de-thatched on Tuesday and then lightly sanded on Thursday.
The spring tree works are coming to a close with some more dead trees to be removed and trimming to continue. Thursday will see the start of stump removal throughout the courses, which will take at least two days to complete.
The front left bunker on 12 River will have some remedial work carried out on the face of the bunker. A pictorial of the works will follow later this week.
The artificial tee on 7 West was in play for last Wednesdays comp and will be again this coming Saturday. Please let us know what you think.
