The bunkers have all had a weed-eat, spray and re-shaping of the sand this week. This is why they were GUR for a few days as it meant we could work in them without having to rake our footprints out each time. I will be rotary hoeing 3 of the heavier bunkers early next week.
While not pleasant to work or play golf in, the southerly winds have assisted in drying out the wet areas on the Course. It would be nice to get a dry period to enhance the new grass growth in the wetter areas as we are seeing in the dry areas on the fairways.
Next week being a short week will mean we are spending most of our time in preparation for the Festival of Golf. There will be some more weed-eating around tees, sprinklers and signs as well as hopefully finally sowing the 17th bunker if the weather holds.
