This week we laid another 150sqm on the ditch banks at the new ditch on the driving range. This is progressing nicely, another couple of trailer loads of turf should see the majority of the ditch complete.
The weather has been mild still for the time of year. This has meant disease pressure is high. Fusarium the most likely disease to effect turf at this time of year, using a preventative approach we try to predict this higher pressure circumstances and apply a fungicide before disease effects the turf to badly.
Today we applied an application of slow release fertiliser and iron on to the greens. Also an application of slow release nitrogen on to the tees. This should stand them in good health when temperatures start to tumble.
