Nearly all fairways have now been liquid fertilised and the first ones done are already showing some growth with the warmer weather. Soil temperatures are starting to rise which is the catalyst for the turf to really start moving.
The West greens also had some stress this week from the warmth and wind with some of the high spots drying out a little and requiring some back up water which is a sign that the weather has turned. They are in excellent health at the moment with all the maintenance programs aimed at developing a strong root system which has been achieved heading in to summer.
Some trials were carried out on the couch practice green for the upcoming River greens renovation which proved successful so final plans are being made for that operation which happens on Monday and Tuesday November 16 and 17.
