 Our Apprentice Graham being shown how to use the turf iron
 This week we have done some extra work to green 15 on the Balcomie course, we solid tined to 4" to relieve compaction and make holes for the seed, over seeded 2 ways, top-dressed with sand then rubbed in, this will will help us improve the grass species and surfaces, we are planning to target 1 green each month so not to interfere with play etc

 Sign to inform the golfers/visitors of the work that has just been completed to green 15
 Work is still ongoing at our dump area of building a perimeter bank and extending area
 It was our monthly cleaning and blowing of the car parks and road/roundabout to the Clubhouse
 Ongoing mowing to all playing surfaces
 We have been out hand weeding our Balcomie course greens for daises etc
 The Craighead greens have had an application of liquid fertiliser and iron to perk them up
 This week I was lucky enough to get a tour of Kingsbarns Links with other local Greenkeepers to find out all the prep work for holding the Women's Open next month

 After our course walk we had a tour of the local Kingsbarns Whiskey distillery
