As we welcome in the first week in February, with a wet week forecast, i think we have seen the entire four seasons already this year. We had a dry start to the year, with only 23mm of rainfall in January. This allowed us to cut and present the course well for the time of year.

With the course/greens having had dry, sun, frost, snow and rain already this year, i am currently happy with the condition of the greens. They are holding up well, especially as i have taken the decision, to hold off on introducing temporary/winter holes.  However, i am awaiting soil sample results, just to confirm my gut feeling.

We are also on schedule with our machinery maintenance, with all cutting units sharpened and machines serviced.
