April 2017 Spring Maintenance

25/4/17. High winds and hail storms took its toll  on the Birch tree at the corner of the 2nd hole on Hawkshill . Due to excessive ball damage on the tree it caused a weak point within a limb which resulted in the break . a birch tree is a soft wood tree which means when golf balls hit the outer bark ( the productive layer) it damages it causing die back on that area. 
25/4/17. Hail and some snow fell on the course ,but greens still stayed clear due to wetting agent being applied .

20/4/17. New blower out clearing scarifying debris off the tees. Now all ready for a cut to tidy up the look of the tees . Fertiliser will be applied soon to get the colour back and some much needed growth.

20/4/17. Scarifying tees to take out moss , debris and dead grass .
