Essential Hollow Coring Underway

On Monday the 25 March the Spring hollow coring will commence. This essential maintenance will help the greens drain more freely and reduce organic matter thus creating firmer, disease free surfaces for the remainder of the season. The process involves creating core holes of 8mm in diameter and 25mm in depth. The content or cores are then lifted, the greens seeded and topdressed. The work usually takes one week start to finish, weather permitting. Ideally, warmer temperatures and just a little moisture helps to speed recovery. This work is best undertaken in the Spring in order to present good quality greens during the rest of the season. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it is in a good cause.
