GOLF COURSE SUPERINTENDENT’S

NEWS LETTER

April 2016

 

 

Dear Member / Property Owner,

 

Following on from the Golf Course Superintendent’s News Letter sent to you in February, which was designed to keep you up to date with all of the important maintenance procedures which were scheduled to take place on The Indiana Course in March, we are pleased to be able to give you an update on the works carried out and to inform you of the schedule of works which shall take place in April 2016.

 

MARCH COURSE MAINTENANCE UPDATE

 

Driving Range tee

The grass driving range tee will stay open until Tuesday 12th April, 2016

 

Verti Draining

The verti draining of the fairways will now take place in the autumn of 2016.

 

Green’s Collar Turfing

The program of replacing turf on the green’s collars has been rescheduled. Bunker renovation work has taken priority.

 

Bunker Renovation

Many of the bunker edges, over time, have lost their definition and need rebuilding with new turf. All the bunkers on the golf course have been assessed and where needed, these bunkers have been renovated. The white half moon metal stakes will stay in place until the turf has established new roots.

 

Solid Tining Greens

The program of solid tining the greens was completed as per the maintenance schedule.

 

Tee sand topdressing, verti-cutting and overseeding

The program of sand topdressing, verti cutting and overseeding the tees has been completed.

 

APRIL COURSE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

 

Hollow Coring Greens

As previously advised, please be reminded that the greens will be hollow cored on Monday 11thApril and the practice area will be closed on Wednesday 13th April. The hollow coring of the greens is a maintenance practice which is scheduled each year to both maintain and enhance the playing quality of the putting surfaces with which we are accustomed at The Indiana. This practice creates the required environment for strong vigorous roots to grow, the very essence of golf course maintenance.

Driving Range Grass Tee

 

The driving range tee will be hollow cored, verti-cut and overseeded as part of the renovation program to improve the playing surface. The driving range tee is scheduled to be reopened in June.

 

2016 Greens Hollow Coring Dates

In the knowledge that all Property Owners and Members need to have as much notice as possible concerning particular aspects of the golf course maintenance schedule that may temporarily effect the playing conditions of the green’s surface, thus enabling them to plan particular holidays accordingly, please see below the remaining hollow coring date for 2016.

 

Monday 11th April

Monday 16th May

Monday 7th November

 

In Addition the Putting Green, Chipping Green and Driving Range Facility will be closed for hollow coring on Wednesday 18th May 2016 and Wednesday 9th November 2016.

 

You will be able to keep up to date with the full tournament and social calendar, format and any additions, information of how to enter, and much much more, by visiting either our official website www.almanzora.com or by contacting the golf reception at Desert Springs.

 

We and the staff at Desert Springs are looking forward to seeing you on The Indiana course in the near future.

 

Kind regards,                                            Kind regards,

 

Alfonso Castiñeira                                     Anthony Brooks                                                                            Golf Operations Manager                           Golf Course Superintendent
