Course Information and Green Keepers Work
During the weeks leading up to the golf course the green staff have been hard at work maintain the course. Throughout lockdown the greens have been hollow tined, sanded and fertilised. This is important for the greens because course traffic and harsh snow causes the ground to become compacted and hardened. This means drainage is less efficient and the grass’s roots are prevented from absorbing oxygen. Hollow tining allows the compacted turf to expand and air and moisture to be more easily absorbed. The coring helps address the problem of thatch. (Thatch is a layer of grass stems, roots, and debris that settle and accumulate over time.) A thin layer is acceptable but too much thatch will hold water like a sponge. Tining also removes accumulated fibre in the grass’s root zone. It allows for the exchange of a poor soil for a better one through top dressing.
The range opening times:
Monday, 9AM – 7PM
Tuesday, 9AM – 7PM
Wednesday, 9:30AM – 7PM
Thursday, 9AM – 7PM
