Consultant Agronomists Visit
Tuesday 10th May saw the latest visit from our consultant agronomist Mr David Stansfield.
The purpose of his visit was to assess the drainage works that we have carried out in the last 2 years, on 9 of the worst draining greens on the course. Also we were seeking his advice on the best way forward with regard to the ongoing maintenance of all the greens.
The conclusion is that the drainage works in conjunction with our current maintenance programs have significantly reduced the thatch levels in the greens which has resulted in firmer and therefore healthier greens.
With this confirmation of the success of the greens drainage programme we have undertaken to carry out further drainage works on the 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th greens this September. We will also be instituting Mr Stansfield’s recommendations as far as the ongoing maintenance programme is concerned.
