The 10th tee complex construction stage is nearing completion, the path extension and filling of the ladies tee is all that is left for Jetline to complete. A huge thank you to Russell Lines and the boys from Jetline for all the sensational work they have done.

The staff will be busy over the next week or so, extending irrigation lines, levelling the new tee areas to blend into the existing tee levels, cutting and laying turf between other course work primarily preparations for the Capel 3000 this weekend.
 Our plan is to complete the Men's Main Tee Box and have the Ladies Tee backfilled to wall height to allow play from both tees for this weekend. 
Next week we will complete the new section of the Ladies Tee Box and the following week the Mens White tee box.
Green Renovations are only a little over a week away hopefully we have fine weather over the next few weeks to help us complete all these important works.   

Finally a huge thank you to Graham Colton, Peter Dillon and helpers for …
The green staff put up a $1000 hole in one prize and a $500 Birdie for a short time on the 3rd hole this week.
 No one claimed the prize maybe due to the tree obstructing the hole !
Once we cleared the tree that came down in the latest front to pass through our cash went back in our pockets.
Thankfully no major damage to the putting surface with only a few pitch marks, nothing were are not use to repairing.

Now that I have your attention, Greens renovations are fast approaching and this year due to the National Vets in November , (only 4 weeks from our schedules renovations), our normal Greens Renovations will be split into two “mini” less vigorous Renovations in order to have the greens back in play and to speed for this event whilst still gaining the important health benefits from aeration and sanding.

Our October renovations normally consist of using 12 to 14mm solid or hallow tines and usually takes up to 4 to 6 weeks for full recovery and not to the speed we are chasing for the vets.
