Maintenance Schedule

 

  • Our greenkeepers have chosen the following dates to do the hollow tining and top dressing of the greens:

    Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd May 2018
    – Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th September 2018

    – Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd May 2019
    – Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th September 2019

  • These works are essential in order to keep and maintain the greens in good condition for play during all year round. Through this operation, it reduces or prevents the accumulation of excess thatch, it provides a method to improve the soil mixture around the highest part of the green’s roots and it relieves soil compaction, making it more permeable.

  • However, it is a proved fact that after the aerification –for about 6/7 days-, the putting surfaces will be irregular due to the accumulation of sand from the hollow tining operation and will affect the rolling of the ball, which means that the greens will be in less than perfect playing condition.
    Nevertheless, during the days immediately after these works, we have introduced a “special Maintenance green fee” (Low Season rate), as a gesture of good will.

  • Please understand that the hollow tining of greens is merely a short-term disruption that has long term benefits for the golf course.
