Another month of golf has flown by. Our course is in great condition the greens putting true. The roller and the sharp mower blades are showing great results. The areas where the wire grass has been removed has taken well with other areas to be done soon.

Another successful golfing month has passed.
The weather, though cool, has been kind with consistent rain at the right times making the course excellent, but no run.
All grades have returned moderately good scores reflecting the lack of run. Serious care in putting, because of the winter (lack of ) growth has been paramount.
