Green Keeper News
Monday 26th June.
The replacement of the irrigation tank shall now not take place until w/c 3rd July. During this period of hot weather we shall not be cutting the greens as often as usual but shall be rolling instead to avoid removing material and moisture from the plant. Our only means of watering the greens at present is to use the sprayer or bowser parked to the side of the green. This is a lengthy process and you may need to skip a hole where the green is being watered. We would like to thank members for their understanding. We have in place a programme of spraying recovery wetting agent products to assist with the re-wetting of the soil once we have water again. The finer and desirable grasses which we have increased over the past few years are quite resillient to drought stress and do recover after a period of dormancy.
