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.

Congratulations go to Rowany’s pro golfer Tom Gandy for his efforts on the Sunshine Tour in South Africa. Not only did he make the cut but up until the 8th hole in the final round at Fancourt he was on the front page of the leaderboard. Unfortunately, a quadruple bogey on the 9th dropped him out of contention. Bravely finishing with back-to-back birdies Gandy clawed his way up to joint 25th place on 11 under par.

The eventual winners Paul Eckersley (6) and Martin Derbyshire (14) dovetailed well, particularly on the back nine which they completed in one over par. This enabled them to triumph on countback that went down to the last three holes. Derbyshire dug-in to deliver the dynamic ending with a nett birdie followed by a nett eagle. Playing level par over nine holes, Eckersley’s efforts ended with a three pointer on the 18th.
