Acceptance Minutes of Committee Meeting 3rd February 2014
The height of cut remains at 5.5mm
A lawn sand based product high in sulphate of ammonia has been applied to the greens to combat any surface squidge appearing due to the bacteria dying. This happens when the greens become saturated for prolonged periods of time!!! Ie the surface becomes slippery black and squidgy.
They are all being cut as and when we can get on them
Three greens have been hollow tined with a 12mm tine
Currently the 2nd green is on a temp due to the excessive amounts of rain fall, this has been over seeded and hollow tined again. At the moment we have 2 temp greens in play, both have the yardage up on the tee sign, reception is informed each day as to which green is in play.
All tees devoted with pure dwarf rye for drought tolerance and play
Verti drained down to 7 inches in depth
All tees and surrounds are being cut once a week at the moment
Also the tees will be fed in the next month with their 4 month slow release granular feed
Due to the weather we have not touched the fairways or the rough
Currently all the rough is having the tree debris picked up
We are having a new shed built
302mm of rain fell in Feb
Winter ropes out on the course
2 temp greens on the 2nd
