Course Update

August Report

July marked a continuation to our summer renovation programs with all surfaces receiving various aeration and vertical mowing practices. These critical renovations help us produce healthy year round turf by relieving compaction, promoting root development and firming playing surfaces. Recovery from renovations has been pleasing with all areas showing strong growth and dense coverage.

A limited number of rough areas have struggled through the transition process between winter and summer grasses and also as a result of our grassy weed control program. As of late July re-turfing of these areas has commenced and will be ongoing through August to achieve complete turf coverage in roughs prior to September and the busier golfing season.

The new chipping green area continues to improve and develop and will be re-opened towards the middle of August. We have also completed adjustments to the cart entry point at number one which is expected to improve the agronomy’s team’s ability to manage cart wear and also allow for smoother access to this hole from the cart path.

Renovation cycles will continue in August with vertical mowing, coring and top-dressing planned for greens, tees and roughs. These will be the last aggressive cycle of renovations for the summer season and once completed the agronomy team will be focused on improving detailing on the golf course as we strive to have the course in optimum conditions for the season ahead.   The agronomy team understands the disruption renovation cycles can cause to playing conditions however all efforts will be made to limit any disruption to the golf experience during these works.

The agronomy team would like to thank all golfers for their ongoing support and understanding during the renovation works.
