The rough mower has been out and cutting into those uncut areas which are drying out. The 30 mm last week did not help but the uncut areas are reducing in size. The greens are getting some growth and they will now be cut on Saturday mornings as well as during the week. Click on the photos to enlarge them.
Last week Blake was back at work cleaning out drains around the 8th tee, 13th hole, 15th hole, 6th/7th holes and behind the 11th green. Work is continuing this week on the 16th fairway installing underground drainage to remove surface water which sits in the area of the old fairway bunker. See photo adjacent.
