The revetting work on the 13th greenside bunker is now completed. All that remains is to fill it with sand and tidy up the turfed edges.
The next bunker lined up for revetting will be the greenside bunker on the 16th.

As was reported earlier in the week the start of work was delayed due to poor weather on Monday. The Greenstaff have managed to complete the coring exercise which was scheduled and Tony is happy with the results thus far.
The greens have been verticut and ironed before overseeding and being top dressed. The dressing has been “matted” in rather than using the sweeper which, when used, removes the seed which has been applied. Likewise the greens have not and will not be cut until next Monday to avoid picking up the seed and dressing whilst mowing thus defeating the object of the exercise.
The greens will be top dressed again early next week as Tony was reluctant to place too much dressing on the greens in one go as the weather today was unpredictable and any heavy showers would have made it impossible to “mat” the dressing into the greens. It is likely that the brush will be used when the greens are top dressed next week. Hopefully the predicted weather will be correct and help the greens recover as quickly as possible.
