Scottish Spring Time

This Spring the Weather has been very poor for promoting early growth ,this has not been a problem for our fine turf areas which have provided good Winter & Spring surfaces and have come through with good vigour and density. Our main problems areas with lack of growth are the newly constructed 14th Green and the newly turfed banks of the burn at the 13th .

The Reconstructed 14th Green needing Mother Nature to provide some Heat!
The Newly Turfed Burn Banks at the 13th Needing some Heat to help the Turf Knit Together.

We have managed to get 5 Top Dressings on the Greens. You can also see up on the bank above the Green the Gorse Bushes have been burnt badly with the Freezing Easterly winds we have been experiencing.
