With the return of some good weather, this has enabled the spring aeration and top-dressing programme to continue with the programme now being almost complete.  Surrounds and approaches have also been aerated and lightly top-dressed, to help try and establish a more even grass coverage.  We will also shortly be aerating and top-dressing the tees and some selected fairways.

Unrepaired pitch-marks continue to be a problem, particularly on the par 3s, please can members ensure that they repair their pitch-marks.

We hope that you are looking forward to the first major of the year at Augusta National, with the greenstaffs tip to take the green jacket being Hideki Matsuyama…
