December Greenkeeper Report 2017

Golf courses December Report 2017

Both courses

Greens – Cut or rolled when possible with the adverse ground conditions and most of the play has been on winter greens on the Craighead course. The greens were deep spiked at the start of the month to help with surface drainage and an application of iron was applied.

Surrounds – Cut when required and if the ground conditions allow.  

Tees – Cut when required but still divoting, emptying bins, topping up ball washers and picking up broken tees etc on a weekly basis.  Aeration work still continues on all tees to relieve compaction. All tees were top-dressed.


Drainage work to part of the 2nd fairway on the Craighead course has been completed.

Rebuilding of the 12th green side (RHS) and 15th bunker on the Balcomie course.

Gorse maintenance at holes 16 & 18 on the Balcomie course.
