Course update 23rd November 2018

Nothing substantial this week.  Greens were cut today for the first time, with little taken off.  They were also rolled to firm them up, and from reports this morning they were surprisingly brisk.  The fungicide is dealing with the fusarium - it takes a couple of weeks to show through.

 We just have a small area by the 17th bunker and the new fairway bunker on 3 to returf, which will be done next week.  The original fairway bunkers on 13 have had their sand line reshaped as proposed by the architect - see attached photo, but note that the new RH fairway and green side bunkers will not be shaped until we add sand next February/March.

 The 4th and final rough mower has arrived for trials, but on visual inspection it is not convincing.  A decision will be made next week (I think it already has) and orders placed.
