While the club is closed we have taken the opportunity to do some much needed upgrades and renovations to the clubhouse and outdoor areas.
No 1 on the list:- replacement of the main bar floor
Paint, paint & more paint. Our outdoor decks have received a face-lift to get them back looking FABULOUS!!! Our bar stools were also given a facial and some new signage placed around the club.
The staff and volunteers were very busy last week with greens on course being renovated. A special thanks to the volunteers the greens staff in removing the cores off greens and thanks to Colin for getting the word out to members for help.
Renovation key objectives
• Removal of thatch in greens (layer of dead and living stems and roots between green and soil layers)
• Remove soil compaction
• Increase air and water flow into the soil profile
• Incorporate fertiliser amendments into profile from soil test results (Nutrismart and Gypsum)
• Increase root system in soil profile
