Green Keeper News
Tuesday 24th November
All greens in play.
Please note - Irrigation drain down taking place today. Compressed air used to clear water from the system. Pop-ups will be coming on and off during the day.
Drainage Update - The last areas in the initial phase of drainage is now all but complete. A few additional drains were put in by the 5th tee and around the 15th approach / 16th tee. The weather unfortunately set in before the last three or four runs could be completed on the 15th approach. We have a couple of weeks for the conditions to improve before the equipment is required elsewhere. The improvement in the 7th fairway is already evident after recent downpours.
