5th green update

All greens turf has been removed and laid out on the fairway and rough area short of the green. Work has started to remove the old root zone which will be dumped as it is full of clay and silt. Having removed the old root zone it is clear to see where the problems lie with this green, The picture shows the layers of blue clay and silt material which inhibited the drainage from the surface. Also there is a large quantity of gravel and stones below the green that will need to be removed before we can add new sand and root zone. Drains were installed into the bunkers to remove water during the winter months.

  1. Glad we are rid of that gravel & clay, hopefully not similar problems underlying our greens along the clay belt
