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.

Robert Braide (4) returned to winning ways, stepping in with 39 points to secure the Simcocks sponsored Stableford on Saturday. Braide, who just happens to be the financial controller at Simcocks, took the money with a thrifty three over par performance, which included two birdies and thirteen pars. Double bogeys on the 8th and 11th, plus a bogey on the 15th, being the only blemishes.

Whether our Anthony Hopkins needs to wear ‘The Mask of Zorro’ is debatable, but he certainly slashed a few shots off his handicap (22) by winning the Neville Peterson Memorial Trophy with 42 points at Castletown on Saturday. Playing ‘target golf’ Hopkins fashioned four gross pars which helped him net seven birdies and ten pars. Only the 6th, on which he scored a nett bogey, caused him to card less than two points.
