Hard to believe we are on the same planet after what happened last week end into Monday!! The difference in the courses is astounding and a credit to the hard work of the crew to get them that way. Thanks to all the members and visitors who have paid us compliments over the past few days. It really does brighten our day and makes the hard work worth the effort. All main playing areas are back to normal with some areas of rough still needing a mow. This is the time when the rough can get away on us with some heat and now plenty of moisture in the ground so please bear with us. It's not often at this time of year we get such an extended forecast for light winds so make the most of it on the courses while you can!!
A big week next week with the re-location of a 100mm irrigation main line across the front of 4W green on Tuesday. As mentioned before here the two front bunkers on 4W will be reduced in size to allow for the sweeping bend of the pipe. At the moment holes 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 are supplied by only one 100mm irrigation main line following the failure of the one we are replacing at 4W which doesn't allow for required water pressure.
The path at the rear 10W across the front of ½ way West and 15W green is also scheduled to be re-surfaced.
If the weather is kind to us the West tees will get a renovation next Thursday. Hopefully we will be able to get them scarified and hollow tyne aerated in the day.
