All rough areas are being cut with the Super 500 flail machine. Over the past 5 years we have cut/ raked and collected grass from these areas to thin the sward and return the rough to a thin wispy condition. It is noticeable this spring that the amount of grass collected has greatly reduced from previous years. This shows we are making real progress now with this programme of work. These areas will be left to grow now for the summer months with some thinning work carried out using the terra rake in mid summer. The natural fescue grasses will grow and give us wispy type conditions to frame each hole. These pictures were taken at the 1st hole near the landing area below the green.
