Wentworth Greenkeeping support team 2016

Congratulations again to Brett and Steve who have been selected for the second year running to be part of the 'European Tour' Greenkeeping support team at Wentworth at the end of May.
Well done to Ollie too who was on standby but has now been asked to work day one of the tournament.

This gives the boys fantastic experience working and supporting in one of the biggest golf tournaments in the world.

All bunkers have now been weeded and tidied up for the first time this year.

Finally It's feeling like spring and the grass is starting to grow.. Course finally starting to dry up too allowing us to cut some rough and put some stripes around the place...

Good luck to everyone taking part in the masters this week!!!

15th Feb 2016

After a couple of frosty mornings and a few other methods (including Colin the Cat haha) being tested out we've finally started minimising the crow damage on and around greens...

In other news - Spring is slowly coming around along with greens maintenance which is planned to start on Monday March the 7th. Further information on this will follow closer to the time.

February 2016

After probably the busiest January we've ever had due to continued crow damage and wet weather weather we finally move in to February and closer to spring and greens maintenance.
At the end of January myself, Brett and Ollie did manage to get away for two days to go on lots of work courses in Harrogate at the country's Greenkeeping exhibition.
As well as learning lots, keeping up to date with the latest legislation and new machinery on the market, we also got to do a bit of networking. Oh and a well deserved cheeky beer at night :)
Below are some of the seminars we attended continuing our Cpd qualifications.....
