Latest news from Greens Committee

Please note we are carrying out Greens Maintenance from 21st September.

As my August report alluded to the greens were showing some signs of stress, such as at the front right of the 1st green. Our HGK has monitored and managed this challenge and as such the issues appear to have now subsided.
Pot planting of fescue seed has been undertaken. This can be quite invasive but is essential to do it now, whilst there is some sunshine and warmth. It will give the seed the greatest chance of establishing itself and bringing huge improvements to the sward in 2021. To ensure members are able to play on acceptable putting surfaces this has only been applied to the worst affected greens and to only half of the putting surfaces, with the other half being prepared once the greens have recovered.
September course maintenance has been squarely aimed at managing the day to day workload to present an acceptable course and freeing up the manpower to begin the course construction improvements.
Course improvements
Members will be able to see the revetted bunkering at Doctor and the newly created dune straddling between the 2nd fairway and the 3rd green. At the 4th front right bunker has moved 3 metres and some shaping at the throat of the green to make the entrance fairer. A new fairway bunker is under construction 262 yards from the back tee. I have been closely monitoring the progress of these projects and am delighted with the progress so far.
I am pleased to confirm that fairway recovery has continued into September due to the climate. Our HGK will continue to promote this by careful application of water and some pot planting of targeted areas.
Stewardship and Bushes removal
We await final approval on the finance to fund the works from the rural payments agency but are hopeful that this is imminent. I have asked the HGK to outline his proposals should we go ahead with removal.
A further meeting was held on the 17th September with Hunter’s the irrigation consultants. A master design has been produced. This design is now with the HGK and will be discussed in detail at the next greens meeting for any revision.
