 May this weather continue
 The Craighead course greens are recovering well from the major aeration work that was carried out to reduce thatch levels, improve drainage and air movement through the soil structure, which will result in firmer surfaces
 We are hoping the greens will be fully recovered in another 2 weeks
 It's that time of year that we spray for weeds, mostly daises we suffer from so we applied a selective herbicide to all the fairways on both courses
 With us using the irrigation systems more with irrigating to keep the plant moisture levels up, watering in fert and washing in sand, we have been having bursts on the old Balcomie course system
 The old PVC pipe work coming to the end of it's life expectancy plus the glued joints

 Another issue we are having is the old electric cabling for the irrigation system needing repairs
It's great to see all the wildflowers in bloom round both our courses
