Greenkeepers news

In July, a selective weed control herbicide was applied to all of the fairways and we can now start to see the dying dandelions, clover and daisies. These will shrivel and disappear and the grass will grow into the bare areas. Come September, we will slit and overseed the barer areas.

Half the bunkers were destoned again last week and we have started topping up the bunker sand. In the Autumn we will start work on the STRI report and fill in and turf some of the bunkers that are now misplaced.

The greens were fertilised this week and a few weeks ago we redressed the 5th green with a sand/soil mix and now the green is looking much healthier. In 3 weeks' time we will be doing our renovations to the greens with deep thatch removal and sand injection with a soil/sand dressing. These works will have little impact on the play as the temperatures are much higher and re-growth will happen very speedily.

As we go into August our thoughts will now be on the Autumn/Winter programme to ensure the greens and course generally are in good condition to take us through.

The Open 

Heroic Henrik

The golf world has run out of superlatives for Henrik Stenson, who claimed his first Major title at Royal Troon last weekend - what a final round we were treated to. Has there ever been a more impressive final round in Open Championship history? 

Both the Swede and 2013 Open champion, Phil Mickelson carded 63s around the famous links, but it was Stenson - who shot his 63 on Sunday - who prevailed, despite the American posting a hugely impressive 65. 

On any other day, Mickelson would have been celebrating his sixth Major. To put their scoring into perspective, Mickelson (-17) finished three shots shy of Stenson but 11 clear of JB Holmes in solo third. It was a two-horse race for the Claret Jug before they teed off on Sunday, but few people could have expected them to surge further clear in the manner they did. If you've been on holiday and haven't checked out the highlights yet, be sure to do so, it was something else. 

Hopefully that's got the juices flowing for many of you to get out and play, no doubt these two super pros have inspired many young golf fans watching on, it really was sport at its very best.  

If you have been inspired to get out and improve your game during this weekend's action, get in touch here and we can book a session in to help you on your way.
