Update new machine

Next week you may see the green staff out and about with a new machine. It is called an Air2G2. The Air2G2 uses three probes to laterally inject pressurised air up to 12-inches beneath the surface of the soil to fracture the compacted layers that form as a result of foot traffic, mechanical traffic and nature’s daily wear and tear.

These laterally injected air blasts loosen up compacted soil immediately, but without any disruption to the surface of the turf or the roots below. With frequent use, the Air2G2 324 creates surfaces that are healthy, firm and ready for play immediately after treatment.

We will be trying this machine out around the aprons and fringes and anywhere we feel it can do benefit. If we feel it is successful we will look to make it another part of our Spring and Autumn maintenance.

It isn't a fast machine and please do not hit your balls at the greens staff until they wave you to play. We will try and stay out of your way as much as possible

Green Keepers News 15/3/22

Well it looks like the weather is possibly on the turn and although tomorrow has some rain forecast it looks as though it may start feeling like spring soon.

As such the greenstaff will begin doing some course work to get us ready for the summer ahead and hopefully we can lift the trolley ban soon

I mentioned in the last email we would be doing some Micro Coring and this will take pace on Monday and Tuesday of next week

Micro coring or hollow tine is a round tube that penetrates into the ground, collects a core and when the tube penetrates the ground again, the core is pushed out through a hole.

This allows greenkeepers to remove material, such as poor quality soil and thatch and allows water and air into the root zone.

When a core comes out, it needs to be replaced with something. So, when thatch is removed, top dressing is applied behind it to fill up the holes.

Think of it as a soil exchange programme. Thatch and soil is removed and quality sand is added to aid water movement through the surface and drainage. That makes it a lot easier for the plant to grow.

With the exchange of old for new this should keep the greens healthy and improve ball roll and playability into the summer months

We are aiming to do 9 each day and have them top dressed and all ready for you to play with as little disruption as possible

There will also be some fertilisers going down on different parts of the course to follow up on the aprons that were fertilised today

We will also be looking to carry on our over seeding program from last year but this will take place more towards the end of April when the growing season getting under way

I hear we are going to have a bumper April with the weather so fingers crossed the weather man got it right this year

Buggies & Trollies on PATHS ONLY!!! Please do not cross roped off areas with trolleys!
