The Green Keepers Report

Much of the hard work carried out over the last number of months has now started to pay dividends with the conditioning of our greens and all three courses have responded extremely well to the slight changes we’ve made in our agronomic practice. Right now all greens are running at speeds of between 10 and 11 feet. Bermuda dormancy has resulted in lack of colour and slightly reduced the visual impact of the course, however this is to be expected and is very much the norm for the species in the Algarve at this time of year. In the coming weeks (when soil temperatures are more favourable) the colour will return and we plan to continue with our Kikuyu removal program. As highlighted in previous newsletters it is critical that we address the infected areas as soon as possible and our work may lead to some minor unsightly blemishes for a brief period on our North & South courses. The areas will be very playable but we would like to apologize in advance for any inconvenience the works may cause.
