Covid-19: Latest information & re-opening updates

Date posted 08 Sep 2021

As we go into Autumn we finally get some dry and hot weather in the last few days of summer which will please those who love playing in the sun. The last two weeks of August are good example of how quickly the grass deteriorates and turns brown where there is little or no irrigation! To this point the Fairways and rough have held well and the fairways have had a good covering of green grass to aid play. As I write this though we are due rain and the temperatures are dropping back to average so hopefully the course will recover quickly.

Tees are generally looking lush and the high Nitrogen fertiliser that was applied earlier in the summer has helped sparse areas grow back and the lower temperatures over September will help them recover more

Greens have performed well over the summer season and have received continuous treatments but the adding of sand and relevelling will take place in autumn along with the tees. Now that we are due lower temperatures in the day and still warm at night, fungus will be our main enemy and a pre treatment fungicide will be applied mid September.

Early autumn is also a good time to apply another selective weed killer to selected areas on the course and kill of any emerging weeds on greens and approaches.
