The greens will be cored and sanded on Wednesday 18th September 2013. This process is a necessary part of looking after the greens and there are three main reasons it must be completed:
- Removal of thatch. This helps to stop the greens from becoming soft and spongy.
- Levelling the green. Coring and sanding helps to remove holes and damage that has appeared on the greens throughout the year.
- Aerating the green. This is vitally important as without doing this the greens will compact due to constant traffic, causing them to harden and potentially die.
Once again it will be a full on day requiring extra hands to assist in the ensuring as even a covering of sand as possible and we would like to thank the army of volunteers that come out each year to help the green staff complete this job.
