It’s not been a bad summer so far for growing grass, warm and humid with plenty of the wet stuff, but far from being a normal August it has brought disease to the greens. ANTHRACNOSE, you may have noticed it on the some of the greens particularly the eleventh, small round dark circles that look like broken up fairy rings. Anthracnose occurs in two forms, basal rot and foliar blight, which can develop at different times of the year depending on the weather conditions, hopefully we have it under control. Treatment has been carried out using a heavy dose of iron and a feed of nitrogen.
The news from the new 18th is, we have started building a new forward tee which will be positioned to the left side of the red tee, and the bunkers on the new 18th have been lined, to make them rabbit proof and stone free. In addition work is now under way on creating the beautiful feature bunker that will stop any stray balls over hit down the right hand side of the fairway from running into the gulley.

The victor of the fifth round on Saturday was Kevin Lewin (22). Starting with a four pointer birdie he then appeared to lose focus and finished the front nine in 50 shots for a mere 16 points. Then a different picture emerged as Lewin joined the dots and the putts plopped in. With a fantastic four over par back nine Lewin added an unbeatable 25 points to his tally.
