We came in on Monday morning to begin hollowtining but unfortunately the weather was against us as it was raining.

This highlights the importance of having a full week to carry out the jobs that we need to do.

Tuesday morning we where able to begin the aeration. Hollow tining at the depth of 2inches. The benefits of this are.

• Relieve compaction
• Creates air pockets for new root growth
• Removes thatch

After the hollow tining we concentrated on producing a clean finish by blowing, brushing and cutting the greens to try and create the best putting surface we could ahead of the Maggie vale memorial day.

We finished of the rest of the greens Wednesday morning followed by another cut and roll to bed down any plucking from the aeration.

Thursday morning with ideal weather we sprayed the greens with some nutrients to aid root growth. This was followed by a heavy top dress of 25 tonnes of sand over the whole course the benefits of this are.

• Helps root growth
• Aids drainage
• Firmer greens

The irrigation system was then used overnight to help push the sand into the profile.

After Effects.

• Height of cut raised to 4mm (if weather allows after recovery this will be brought back down)
• We are unable to cut greens over the next few days due to surface sand blunting the blades.
• Uneven roll
• Early morning play or damp conditions will result in sand being collected on the ball.

This is unfortunately essential greens work that needs to be carried out to maintain good greens throughout the season.

Thanks for your understanding.
