Well December saw the return of golfers and staff back to Parklands , following an incredibly dry November the course was looking in great condition, unfortunately the weather had other ideas for the opening weekend, where we had over two inches in as many days.
Having such a wet period and the amounting golf being played, the greens team are having to manage the traffic around the course , best they can!. This is to protect the course as much as possible, as well as giving the golfer the best possible course they can.
Work has continued at the first , pulling the main drain from the pond up to the green, connecting the greens drainage system to its outlet , which is already performing extremely well.
Work to the fairway bunkers will begin this week,with them being reshaped into our new style of bunkering
Greens and tees winter fertiliser has been applied, which will keep them ticking over healthy during the winter months
Some greens have been treated with a fungicide, to help fight off any unwanted disease on the playing surface, which has always been easy with the mild temperatures and wet conditions, but on a whole ,we’re very pleased
The greens team would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy & healthy new year. We look forward to seeing you all, for a better 2021!
