180 mm of rain has fallen on the courses in the last 36 hours and that follows rain being recorded on 11 of the previous 13 days. Suffice to say that we are wet! The rain on Monday morning was mainly confined to the coast as the picture shows blue skies a tantalizing kilometre away.
As with all climatic events there is some good to come out of it with the West greens getting a break from
play and therefore no new pitchmarks and they are looking great. On the downside, disease pressure on all the greens is high with the moisture and humidity but at this stage they are disease free. The River greens have weakened as a result of the poor light intensity of the past cou ple of weeks and certainly since Friday. They will be fertilized this week to help them recover.
