Green Renovations on the 22nd February will consist of using 12mm solid tyne so greens can recover quicker before the rescheduled Mercedes tournament, they will also be lightly scarified, fertilised and topdressed. The weather may restrict renovations if conditions aren’t ideal, ie days are too hot for topdressing or its raining.
30 tons of bunker sand will be ordered with the bunkers on the 17th to take the majority of sand. Drainage lines will also be cleaned out and repaired where needed.
Unfortunately, vandals have struck again with tee markers and soil bins stolen and destroyed.
Repairs are currently taken place at the pump shed.

The fairways have thickened up beautifully resulting in preferred lies being removed from 13th Feb.
