A very pleasant week of weather and the recovery of the West greens following their renovation has been outstanding. The greens do need probably 2 more "sandings" to finish leveling the surface up but the warm weather may affect the timing of this. The sand can literally "cook" the greens if you don't get the application just right so caution will be needed in the coming week or so. The surrounds of the West greens received an application of herbicide this week which has resulted in a "burn" of the leaf which will grow out shortly. The photo below does show just how good the greens look only 2 weeks after renovation.

Signs have been placed on the 1st tees of both courses alerting players to the recent change on placing bunker rakes back in bunkers as follows;
PLEASE PLACE RAKES INSIDE THE BUNKER AFTER RAKING.
Always leave rake in the flat of the bunker with the handle parallel to the line of flight of the hole being played.
Thank you for your cooperation.

And a bit of history for recent members and for those who forget what things looked like:
