A quick update with regards to the on-going thatch reduction on the 5th green.  The green has now received the first of its in season micro tinning, top-dressing and over seeding.  We are pleased to report a 40% reduction in the thatch layer to date.  With these on-going works throughout the 2016 season, a significant improvement in winter playing conditions is expected on this green.

In line with the STRI recommendations all the other greens will soon receive a top-dressing when the weather and golfing calendar permits.

The white line traffic management is now in place and this will be monitored and reviewed throughout the 2016 playing season.
