CLUB UPDATES Course Maintenance    

It’s that  time  of  the  year  again  when  the  weather  goes  from  fairly   cool  to  very  hot  and  humid  in  a  short  period  of  time.  Due  to  this   extreme  change  in  weather  there  is  a  lot  of  maintenance  that  needs   to  be  done  in  order  to  ensure  a  healthy  golf  course.       The  temperature  change  starts  the  summer  paspalum  grass  growing   again  although  the  rye  grass  can  currently  also  grow  at  these   temperatures.  This  means  that  we  need  to  do  a  lot  of  verticutting  and   aeration  on  the  fairways  to  give  space  for  the  paspalum  grass  to  take   over.  If  we  didn’t  do  this,  the  rye  grass  would  quickly  turn  brown   once  the  summer  hits.         Weeds  also  become  a  problem  when  the  temperatures  vary  a  lot.  Our   Golf  Course  Maintenance  department  will  do  their  best  to  eliminate   the  weeds  as  quickly  as  possible  but  it  does  take  time  to  do  so   thoroughly.    

CLUB UPDATES Course Maintenance     The  bent  grass  on  the  greens  does  not  like  heat  and  humidity  which   means  that  we  will  start  to  see  signs  of  Fairy  Ring  on  the  surfaces.   We  will  do  our  best  to  minimize  the  effects  with  aeration,   topdressing,  external  fans  and  watering  procedures.  We  will  also   have  some  potentially  unusual  pin  placements  to  try  to  keep  the   holes  on  the  healthier  parts  of  the  green.  This  will  mean  that  there   will  not  be  a  pin  rotation  as  we  normally  see  throughout  the  year.   Also,  the  putting  green  holes  will  be  replaced  by  external  flags  as  we   did  last  year.       As  always,  thank  you  for  your  understanding.     Yours  Sincerely,   Gavin Eckford Director  of  Golf

          By Gavin         Golf  can     be  described  as  a  variety  of   things    and  each  person  will  tend  to  see       in  a  different  light.  One  word   the  game     that  can     definitely  be  used  to  describe     golf  is    “International”.  It  is  safe  to  say     now  that   golf  is  played  in  a  vast       of  countries  around  the  world   majority     and  with     golf  entering  the  Olympics  in     2016,  t   he  international  interest  will     continue   to  grow.  China  is  certainly     part  of     the  international  family  of  golf     and  they     have  just  hired  on  one  of  the     best  international   players  of  all  time  to       help  their   Olympic  hopes.                                                

International Golf  


Although most  Professional  golfers  log   a  lot  of  airmiles  to  play  tournaments   around  the  world,  there  are  a  few   names  that  stand  out  as  more  travelled   than  others.  Gary  Player  was  the  first  to   break  out  around  the  world  and  the   South  African  “Black  Knight”  did  so   when  it  was  much  less  convenient  to   travel  than  it  is  today.  It  is  estimated   that  Player  has  travelled  more  than  25   million  kilometers  over  his  60  year   career,  which  is  much  more  than  any   other  athlete  in  history.  Following  in   his  countryman’s  footsteps,  Ernie  Els  is   renowned  for  globetrotting,  having   won  tournaments  in  most  continents   around  the  planet.  Finally,  Greg   Norman  or  “The  Great  White  Shark”  is   also  a  great  ambassador  for   international  golf.    As  Australia’s  all-­‐ time  best  golfer,  Norman   won  89  times     all  around  the  world  over  3  decades.

Golf is  very  unique  in  that  the  game  is   played  with  the  exact  same  rules  all   around  the  world.  The  international   element  to  golf  is  one  of  my  favorite   aspects  of  the  game  and  I  have  been   fortunate  enough  to  get  to  see  a  lot  of   the  world  through  the  game  of  golf.  The   international  spotlight  will  once  again
