Winter is coming.....

It’s just a couple of weeks until the clocks go back to signal the end of summer but the Greens staff at the Glen have been preparing the course for the Winter season for a few weeks now.

You may have noticed that the Winter greens have been marked on the course so please remember that these are now to be treated as Ground Under Repair.

Following member feedback we have:

  • introduced the use of the Graden sand injection machine. This will help build the sand base in the greens, reducing the need to use Winter greens in freezing conditions.

  • started early preparation of the Winter greens and allocated more resources to maintain these over the Winter season.

Hopefully there will be no need to use the Winter greens but the unreliable Scottish weather means it’s always better to be prepared.
