The dry summer has taken its toll on the fairways on the Silverburn course. We dont have fairway irrigation on this course so we lost a lot of grass cover during the summer drought. We need to overseed the fairways but there is no point putting seed into the dead thatch layer. Scarifying work with the super 500 machine is removing the dead material and will allow better access to the soil layer below for seeding. They will be done in two directions to remove as much material as possible.

Autumn coring work
The recovery process starts with some hollow coring work to remove thatchy material from the approaches on the Silverburn course. After the dry summer there are lots of areas that need renovated. Too dressing will be applied and then new seed laid to improve turf conditions.

- The site for the new forward yellow tee at the 14th was cleared and the sub base levelled. This tee is situated between the green tee and main tee to reduce the carry to the fairway. Further progress will be reported in due course.
