Greens Committee Update
Ladies and Gents, on Monday September 16th essential tree maintenance work will commence on the course, as recomended by local tree surgeon, Benbow Brothers.
On July 30th Benbows accompanied our Head Greenkeeper, Peter Leath, on a course inspection and strongly recomended the following work:-
The Beech Tree on the left hand side of the 18th fairway requires the crown to be removed, following the recent branch loss.
The Beech tree on the right hand side of the 14th green also requires a decaying branch to be removed, in order to protect the remainder of the tree.
The left hand side of the 9th fairway has an Ash tree that requires the removal of a dead top.
Another Beech tree on the 7th hole is now interfering with the approach to the green and will have around 2 meters removed from the crown.
Finally, the Horse Chestnut on the right had side of the 3rd fairway is virtually rotten and is rapidly deteriorating. This will be removed.
Whilst none of us like to see any trees, or parts of removed, I hope you can appreciate that this action is only taken in the longer term interest of the course.
A full copy of The Tree Surgeons report will be placed on the greens notice board.
