Winter Course Maintenance Programme

Course Works

As the season draws to a close Robert and his team have already started on their winter programme with the coring of the greens. All greens have now been cored with a 7.1mm core and will be completed next week with a dressing of sand. Please see the pictures below with regard to the ongoing work:

Although core aeration temporarily diminishes putting quality, the short-lived pain results in a long-term gain for turf health by reducing thatch and organic matter levels, relieving soil compaction, increasing soil oxygen levels and stimulating healthy growth.

CIBSE Golf Day

Rowallan Castle Golf Club were delighted to host the second annual CIBSE Golf Day last Friday. With challenging weather conditions 80 golfers battled through the elements to complete the round, followed by a fantastic meal in The Glasshouse Restaurant after play.

On the first tee we had Wilson Golf doing the #D300 Challenge to see how many yards you can gain with the correct driver. Amazingly 80 yards was the biggest improvement on the day.

Hole 8 was sponsored by Daiken where there was a bar behind the green to keep all golfers refreshed.

On hole 19 Rowallan Castle hosted the MacMillan Challenge where nearest the pin won a hamper full of fantastic prizes.

If you are looking to host a golf day, the CIBSE golf day is one of many golf days we have hosted. To get more information please call 01563 530550 or email david@rowallancastle.com
