 Monday was a frosty morning
 With the Balcomie course being on it's mid week winter closure we took the opportunity to spray the greens, surrounds, tees & fairways with soluble iron to help harden up the plant cells, which should help reduce disease pressure

 Before we sprayed the greens and surrounds, we gave them another top-dressing of sand to continue to help produce firmer and drier surfaces

This week I attended a seminar on bio pesticides, as this is a hot topic in Greenkeeping at present with so many chemicals coming off the market
