During the last six years at Cruden Bay we have done a lot of work to the Roughs on the course Flailing ,Strimming and Spraying to thin out and break the cycle of the previous years thatch/fibre feeding up the next years heavy growth ,this is done yearly in the Autumn but with recent conditions forcing up heavy growth we have been out Cutting ,Collecting,Blowing,Strimming and then Spraying Off these areas with a Chemical to thin them out.
