A Good Week for the Greenkeepers!

Eesti keeles vaadake alt poolt


Hello Golfers!

What a week it has been for the greenkeepers!

Last week on a bright and sunny day was the day we had been looking forward to since last fall- delivery day for our two new Toro Greensmaster 3420 TriFlex Hybrid mowers!  These mowers were essential for us to be able to keep improving the quality of the golf course.  Our previous mowers were over ten years old, not cutting well and constantly breaking down.  These new mowers will give us the confidence to get the job done right, with better quality and much quicker than before.  In fact, the first day we used the new machines the first players back to the clubhouse noticed that their putts were rolling much better!  So a big thank you to the club management and members for getting us these new pieces of equipment.

Last week we also had the first visit of 2019 from our agronomist Ian Macmillan.  We spent several hours looking at all of our greens, examining the roots, quality of turf and for any active disease.  Ian was very pleased with everything that he saw.  The progress that has been made over the last 3 seasons is finally starting to show- most of our greens are in good condition and any scarring is very superficial and significantly less than years before.  Head Greenkeeper Kris and his Assistant Paul also spent several hours in the seminar room with Ian learning how to get the greens even better.

And last but not least, the answer to the question: WHEN ARE YOU OPENING THE SEA COURSE??  We are happy to report that we have decided to open the Sea Course for play on Friday, April 19!  So book your tee time now and be among the first to enjoy the Sea Course over Easter long weekend!


Tere Golfarid!

Oli tore nädal hooldusmeeskonnal!

Eelmine nädal ühel päiksepaistelisel päeval saabus see aeg, mida me olime oodanud eelmisest sügisest.  Tulid kaks uut niidukit Toro Greensmaster 3420 TriFlex Hybrid.  Need niidukid on olulised meile, et saaksime tagada muru hea kvaliteedi.  Meie eelmised on üle 10 aasta vanad ja ei anna vajalikku tulemust.  Uued annavad kindluse, et töö saab tehtud õigesti, parema kvaliteetiga ja kiiremini kui enne.  Ka golfimängijad märkasid, et peale esimest niitmist uue masinaga, et pallid veeresid greenil kohe paremini.  Suur tänu klubijuhatusele ja liikmetele kes võimaldasid sellel juhtuda!

Eelmisel nädalal oli selle aasta esimene külastus agronoom Ian Macmillani poolt.  Veetsime mitmeid tunde väljakul, uurides greene, muru ja murutaimede juuri ja aktiivseid haigusi.  Ianil oli väga hea meel näha edusamme, mis on kolme aastaga toimunud.  Suurem osa greenidest on heas seisukorras, laigud greenidel on pinnapealsed ja neid on tunduvalt vähem kui aastaid varem.  Head greenkeeper Kris ja assistent Paul veetside tunde seminar ruumis koos Ianiga, õppides juurde uusi nippe, kuidas greene veel paremaks teha.

Ja viimaks, millal avame Sea Course´i?  Meil on hea meel teatada, et avame reedel, 19. aprillil!  Nii, et broneerige aeg nüüd ja nautige pikka nädalavahetust!
