Course update 13th June
After a week of preparation for the Suffolk Amateur we've started on some renovation work and rough cutting. The lower part of the 4th tee took a bit of a hammering over the winter while we re-built the left hand section. The lower tier has been hollow cored today and we'll top dress and over seed as soon as it stops raining! Rough cutting has also started today, we're concentrating on the most dense areas close to the fairway. This week we will aerate, top dress and over-seed the river course greens and next week it will be the turn of the main course. Fertilizer has been applied to all of the greens today so we can expect a bit of a growth spurt, which should help with recovery from the aeration and top dressing.
