Course Update

June Report
Dear Members and Guests,

May was an extremely busy month for the agronomy team as we completed the first cycle of green, apron and tee renovations and the chipping green re-design. We continued to manage the transition process between winter and summer grasses. Recovery from renovations was pleasing with the impact to playing conditions only minor. Overall the transition process is going smoothly with a limited amount of weak areas appearing in high traffic areas of roughs. Additional cultural practices and fertilizer applications will help the recovery of weak areas and limit the volume of re-turfing that will be required.

The chipping green re-design has gone as planned with all ground works completed and the newly laid turf undergoing grow-in as we covert this area into putting surface. Over the coming weeks we will continue to refine the new turf with increased top-dressing and cultural practices; the bunker drainage and sand will be added closer to opening. This enhanced chipping and putting area will offer golfers an improved practice facility.  Other works of note in May included lake cleaning, desert detailing, tree pruning, and irrigation infrastructure upgrade works. 

As we look ahead to June the agronomy team will be focused on general set-up of the golf course for daily play and continuing the transition between winter and summer grasses. Project and renovation works will be paused during the Ramadan period due to reduced staff working hours.

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