We have chosen to utilise the sarrel roller over recent weeks to keep on top of any thatch build up on the greens whilst also minimising surface damage. The spikes used by this process are able to press 2-3 inches into the surface layer of the greens helping to aerate and ensure we don’t suffer from excess water being retained close to the surface. However it is highly important that we continue to use the deeper pencil tines as well to allow aeration through the entire rootzone. Stronger deeper roots promote healthier grass and also help us in the battle to reduce the relative level of sub-optimal poa annua grasses on greens.

Wet winter weather washed out the already rearranged reverse greensomes at Castletown Golf Club on Saturday. The next round is scheduled for January 12th and the final round may now take place the week after that. A dozen players did venture out on the previous Sunday in the nine holes stableford. That event was won by Bronwen Raatgever (32) who went round in a nifty nine over par for 27 points, six clear of the field.
