Why Do We Renovate?

With the recent Greens Renovations and course closure Mon & Tue this week, brings forth the question, why do we renovate? Why is it always carried out when the greens are at their best?

We renovate greens to improve and enhance turf health now and into the future. The benefits of coring is to create a new air space, which will improve surface drainage and infiltration rates of water into the surface. This will also encourage new root and shoot growth, which is necessary for a healthy green.

Over time a golf green will accumulate thatch. Thatch is a layer of dead and living stems and roots that develops between the growing turf and the soil surface. Thatch becomes a problem as it increases insect and disease problems. The thatch layer is an ideal environment for insects to feed and thatch also harbours disease causing organisms.

We control thatch by vertical mowing (dethatching photo 1 & 2) which is a blade that runs perpendicular to the ground. See photo below:

We also control thatch by core aerification. Coring is probably the least invasive way to control thatch. A coring machine is used to mechanically remove a small plug from a green. See photo 3 above the effects of a coring machine that has been filled with sand into the thatch layer.

Of course this intense program of works can only be carried out while there are no players on the course. We are happy to announce the weather played ball and we were able to get everything done to keep our course in the best condition possible.

Thanks Super Seniors!

The last two Super Senior Pennants games played both were very close games. On Monday 29 August we played Bayview at Muirfield. Two games finished square and we lost another on 18th.  Bayview won 5-3. On Thursday 8 September we played Muirfield at Monash. With the scores level at 3-3, the last two games came down the 18th. We lost both games to lose 5-3. As this was our last game, I would like to thank the 15 players who played this year.  It was not easy for players to commit to all games. Every player did his best. We'll be back, bigger & stronger next year.

Did You See?

Last week we had a new addition to our bar with new wine glasses. A great shaped glass that adds rather than takes away from the aroma and taste of your chosen wine with a well-balanced stem and foot.

To add to the aesthetics there is of course our logo that also has a very practical purpose: The bottom edge of the logo circle indicates a 150ml standard pour while the top of the circle is the guide for a 250ml larger pour.

Don't forget to take note next time you order your favourite white, rose or red at the Bar.

A man walks through the front door of his home, clearly exasperated.

"I had a terrible round today," he told his wife. "Oh, no! What happened, honey?" she replied. 

"Well," he said, "I only hit two good balls - and that was when I stepped on a rake."
