Greens News

During recent years there has been understandable concern over the quality of the greens. As a Management Committee, we have been aware that our greens were not as good as they should be.

The Club has consulted STRI, their advice is to use vigorous mechanical aeration methods to tackle the problem i.e. scarifying, hollow tining, sarel rolling and Graden sand injection.

We will be aerating our greens in March to allow gas exchange throughout the greens’ profile. Following this with the first of two graden sand-injection treatments in April (repeated in September).

This Graden sand-injection operation removes thatch to a depth of 40mm and replaces it immediately with kiln dried sand. The greens will be playable within a couple of days.

Over the summer we will regularly treat the greens with the less invasive techniques of verti-cutting, sarel rolling or micro-tining, followed by a light dusting of sand. This should not be noticeable and should not affect the playability of the greens, but it will considerably improve the quality.

The more sand we are able to introduce into the greens profile will result in a firmer more consistent playable surface. We will be issuing “Stimp meter” readings on a weekly basis over the summer (late spring to early autumn).
There will be no major works on our greens over the summer; we will be concentrating on utilising the equipment we have recently purchased, to deliver to our members the best course conditions. With the new equipment members should see a steady improvement in tee boxes, fairways, rough, and greens’ approaches.

The Course Director will publish monthly newsletters to keep you up to date with any issues we have regarding Course matters.
