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.
