Greens Update

Our spring maintenance is now under way with the course starting to take shape as we are seeing growth in many areas now.

  • The height of cut on the greens from 14th April is 4.5mm. This cutting height was not achieved in 2010 until the 28th May so we are 6 weeks ‘ahead’ of last year which is positive sign.
  • The greens have been sprayed with a fungicide and also with fertiliser to encourage growth in the centres to bring on the low lying areas. Top dressing will not take place until growth continues as we don’t want to smother the grass with sand at the moment.
  • The 7th and 15th greens have been graded with sand injection which will really firm up the surface and bring them more in line with the rest of the course.
  • Wednesday 20th April will see us overseed the greens with a machine which punches 1200 holes per square metre for seed to fall into so that will now have the warmth and soil temperature to make a difference.
  • A granular fertiliser will be applied this month which requires watering in. This will happen when the irrigation system is turned back on this week.

TEES- The tees have all been sprayed with a mosskiller and verti-cut to rip out the moss and are now being cut at 12mm, along with the approaches around the greens.

FAIRWAYS – Our fairway scarifier has been out on the 13th and 14th to rip up the moss, dead grass etc and encourage growth which did a good job last year at this time. We will continue to work our way through the remaining fairways over the next few weeks.

BUNKERS – All bunkers are being flymoed, weeded and tidied this week and are being raking regularly to keep the sand levels to a good standard.

PATHS – All paths have been sprayed with total weedkiller to clean them up and edged/strimmed to keep their appearance tidy.

DRAINAGE – The 2 ditches to the left of the 13th fairway are still to be graded to get ‘a run’ on them. Clay and gravel have arrived this week from Dave Barr and along with pipe, slabs and turf to come that job will be started soon with the aim being to leave the left half of the first ditch open and slabbed as a yellow hazard (similar to 2nd hole).

BRIDGES – The ‘sleeper’ bridge between the 6th and 7th is now back in play with one replacement sleeper going down and a cement mix put in place at the 6th side of the bridge. We will keep our eyes on the bridge to see if it holds up

OK but the main danger is during heavy rain when the level of the burn rises above the bridge.


  • All greens were aerated using the ‘Planet Air’ slitter machine on the 30th March, courtesy of John Condron.
  • Several greens have been verti-drained to 6 inch depth after heavy rain in March to help the water through, machine courtesy of Eddie Gibson.
  • All ditches on the course have been flymoed, strimmed and are brushed weekly to keep them tidy.
  • Some of you may notice a difference in the trees at the 6th hole which have pruned up to about head height which makes a difference to the appearance of the hole and allow golfers to now get a shot out from underneath the trees. The same has been done to the trees to the left of the ditch at the 2nd.

Let’s hope for the warm spring weather to continue as myself and the lads continue to work hard (and smart!) in preparing the course for the season ahead.
