PRAISE FOR GOLF COURSE:
STEPHEN DOEKS PROGRAM
The course has received such praise over the last number of months. Mainly due to the program that Stephen Doeks has implemented through initially increasing the regularity of dusting, Verti-draining and brushing the greens before cutting. This unfortunately means that the greens become less appealing for a day or two before they recover. A necessary evil in order to achieve really true greens for the entire year.
ERADICATION OF WINTER GRASS
So, with this, we need to prepare all golfers for another necessary evil with regards to eradicating the winter grass, starting with the surrounds. You will notice over the next week or two that the winter grass, around the greens, is dying off. This is just in time for our growing season, and will give us full coverage shortly afterwards. So please don’t be alarmed by this. This process will be implemented yearly to help us eventually reduce the effect of winter grass on the greens.
REPAIRS TO GREENSIDE BUNKER ON 5TH HOLE
Stephen and his team will start repairing the greenside bunker on the 5th hole this coming Monday. For the duration of this process that specific bunker will marked GUR. Drop nearest point of relief, one club length.
SAREL BEZUIDENHOUT SPONSORED 5TH FAIRWAY BUNKER:
The huge mounds of sand near the 5th fairway bunker have been donated and brought in by Sarel Bezuidenhout. This has been done to help fill in the now enormous headache we have there. This will be our second project that will see the bunker reduced in size, but still visible from the tee. A big thank you to Sarel for his support. He will also provide and install all drainage for the bunker.
