Greens News – February & March

Feb-MArch-Greens-11

It’s been a very hectic and busy few months for the team. The weather again as we all know hasn’t been ideal at all and has made things very difficult, not only from a maintenance and playing side but also planning and operations. Despite this the team have continued to excel, and I must yet again thank everyone on the greens staff for all the hard work and dedication over the winter months. Jonny Platt, who has served the club very well over the last 11 years will be leaving his role on our team at the end of this month and taking up a new challenge at Lytham Green Drive Golf Club. Personally, and on behalf of the club I’d like to thank Jonny for his efforts, and we wish him all the best for the future. While it is a shame to lose someone with Jonny’s experience, it opens the door on a fantastic opportunity to join a team and a club with some really exciting plans. I have been busy interviewing a number of candidates, and I will report back in due course once an appointment has been finalised.

As you will all know and hopefully appreciate this has been my first winter at Moor Allerton Golf Club, and one that I have learnt and documented a lot. I feel I now have a good understanding of what needs to be done and when, to ensure we have a course that is fit for play all year round. It was great to attend the members meeting held at the club and it was really good to meet and chat to a number of members about the golf course. It was pleasing to learn that a lot of the concerns that were raised, mainly drainage issues, are already high on my agenda, and are ones that the club had already asked me to produce longer term plans and costings for.

The winter programme is slowly coming to an end and I am hoping we will now be able to get right into the thick of preparing the course for the coming season.

Greens

I am really pleased with the surface we have been able to produce through a difficult period. The conditions that stop players from being able to use trolleys cause us even bigger problems by hampering the use of any heavy and sometimes even light equipment. Our optimum greens performance moisture content is between 22-30%. Since the 1st Dec as a result of the wet weather we have been averaging 65%. We have had to pick our moments and time any work in accordance with the weather. The grass coverage we have is superb and that has helped us greatly through some high disease pressure periods and also in the fight against any moss infestation. Through constant light aeration, use of the Air2G2 machine and also a light micro hollow core we have not had any standing water on the greens at all, and greens that may have had problem areas in the past such as 17, 14, and 5 have all come through really well.

Feb-MArch-Greens-1-&-2

The high thatch, or organic matter content as it is properly referred to, is still a big issue, but one that we will begin to deal with during the April renovations. In April we have 9 holes closed each week respectively from the beginning of the month. I know that this is into the start of the season but we must use the advantage of having 27 holes to ensure any work we do is carried out properly, and in the correct conditions.

We will be carrying out a process called Graden Sand Injection. This is a machine operated by hand that will tear into the organic matter content to the depth we need, and at the same time replace the removed material with sand. This is the best way of removing as much of the OM in one hit, while keeping the surface structure solid. I am confident that it will have an immediate impact on the firmness of the greens.  The Graden Sand Injection is a very labour intensive operation for a small team such as ours, and it will see us deposit over 95 tonnes of Mansfield MM45 sand into the greens surfaces. With this in mind and still having to maintain 18 other holes I have managed to secure a deal with an outside contractor who will carry out the work, assisted by myself and another member of our staff. This will be a huge help, and will ensure we can have the greens back into play for the respective weekends.  I will report back on the process and results next month, but if interested please feel free to come and have a look when we carry out the work.

The captains drive in will signal the beginning of the new season and with that the upgrade in quality that I believe Moor Allerton should be accustomed to. The new Pins, Flags and Cups will be on display for the season opener.

Tees

The tees have received a similar programme of aeration over the last few months and the middle 9 tees have been micro hollow cored to a depth of 2”. They were done as part of a trial using a machine I had on demonstration. The Toro 648 pedestrian aerator is a piece of equipment we will look to build into next year’s fleet upgrade plan. It will give us a lot more flexibility and allow us to carry out a number of aeration and coring practices in conditions that may not favour a tractor mounted piece of kit. This will also limit the weight and footprint put across the greens.

During the greens renovation weeks while the holes are closed the tees and approaches will be hollow cored and top dressed.

Feb-MArch-Greens-3

Fairways / Semi Rough

It’s been great to finally get out and start some work on the fairways. We dropped the heights down on the 2 large rotary rough mowers we have for the 1st cut, and then this week Andy Ivel will begin to lay down the first set of stripes with the cylinder fairway mowers. Once those lines have been put in and set we will then cut the second stripe line in. We will be altering a few of the shapes and sizes on the fairways and approaches this year to enhance the character of certain holes but also bring the course more into line with how it was designed. This will generally see areas of semi rough running out to fairway bunker edges, and a number of new swales introduced to greens surrounds and approaches.

The fairways and semi rough will be fertilised with a 6 month slow release product in April. This year I will be raising the application rate and extending the fertiliser plan to the greens surrounds and tee – fairway carries in an attempt to improve the grass cover and quality throughout the playing areas.

Bunkers

The Bunkers have had a torrid winter but thankfully we had an opportunity last week to get in and pump any standing water out. This gave us a head start on drying them out, and this week we will go through weeding, hand raking and fixing sand depth levels where possible. As part of a larger project we have begun investigating some of the more problematic bunkers. As I now have use of a 1 and 3.5T excavator we have been able to install new bunker drains into the 7th right green side bunker and also the 18th right green side bunker. If these are successful I will look to chip away at the rest of the problem bunkers once we have the time.  It was clear when working on these bunkers that the current drainage just wasn’t big enough to cope with the size of the bunker, and also the level water.

Feb-MArch-Greens-4-&5&6

Projects / Construction

14th Green

As many of you know the 14th green was subject to some quite substantial damage during the floods in January. After a slow and interrupted start, mainly down to the weather and ground conditions, we were able to start the construction and redevelopment work a few weeks ago and I am very pleased with the progress been made so far.  Martin Crompton is a very experienced golf course landscaper and shaper and has worked all over the world on some of the best courses. He is leading the ground works, with the help of Jonathan Gaunt who is our consulting architect. It’s been an honour to have an input and to be able to work closely with Martin and Jonathan on hopefully what will be a fantastic face lift to the hole. The 14th green will be playable during the Captains drive in with access only from the right hand path. Please respect the traffic management, by all means have a look at what is going on but please refrain from walking on the un-turfed areas.

<img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-914" src="https://i1.wp.com/moorallertongolfclub.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Feb-MArch-Greens-7-8.png?resize=474%2C185" alt="Feb-MArch-Greens-7-&-8" srcset="https://i1.wp.com/moorallertongolfclub.co singulair online.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Feb-MArch-Greens-7-8.png?w=800 800w, https://i1.wp.com/moorallertongolfclub.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Feb-MArch-Greens-7-8.png?resize=300%2C117 300w” sizes=”(max-width: 474px) 100vw, 474px” data-recalc-dims=”1″ />

5th Tee Area

After the work carried out to the 5th hole perimeter and exposing the fantastic stream and woodland area, it would have been a real shame to not try and get the top 5th tee back into play. One of the main reasons this tee was taken out of use was due to the safety of the access. Building the new path was something we aimed to look at next year but due to the team being ahead of schedule I set them the challenge of trying to get it ready for this season. The sub base and ground excavation has been completed, and 20T of road plaining has been delivered to level and firm the base. I am hoping to try and have it open for access ASAP, and then re-visit to sort out the aesthetics at a later date.

While doing this work the team have also re-constructed the bottom tee path so it is now safer and more usable.

Feb-MArch-Greens-12-13-14

Tee Signs and Accessories

You may notice that we have started to move a number of things around on the tee areas. By putting ball washers and bins in certain spots we can make the cutting time of the tee areas a lot more efficient.  The bins will be replaced by solid green trash mates, and they will be fixed to the ball washer. These are a lot less unsightly and will stop litter escaping.

I believe the current tee signs we have are out dated and a large number of them are either damaged or have been patched up. I have put a proposal together to update them to a new 1st class design. I  have a number of members, local businesses and suppliers who have expressed an interest in sponsoring a particular hole, and funding the cost of a new sign before putting this to market. If anyone else would be interested in doing this, please send me an email to: Adam.Matthews@MAGC.co.uk

Here are the designs we are looking at.

Future Work

Myself and the Greens committee identified a number of areas of the golf course that we believed through achievable immediate redevelopment would enhance our great course. I’d like to thank the club in backing us with these plans and I am pleased to say we now have a format of works that will be carried out as soon as the 14th reconstruction has finished. This will include:

  • Re-grading of the ditch that runs from the 9th Tee and in front of the 1st and 10th green.
  • Re-design of the 17th green area
  • Installation of a full lake/pond in front of the 27th green
  • Ground and Improvement works at the Driving Range and Side practice green area.

We will try and limit the disruption to play as much as we can during the above works, but I am hoping you will all agree that any slight interference will be worth it.

New Season

With the new season around the corner I am confident the months of planning will stand us in good stead for a successful and enjoyable year. I would like to thank James Whittaker yet again for his help in making my wishes and ideas for our department come to task. James has been fundamental in helping me provide the team with a uniform that they will be proud to wear, and that really sets the tone for the work we want to produce. It’s been refreshing working alongside James, and to feed off his passion to see Moor Allerton Golf Club keep on improving.

Lastly on behalf of myself and the greens staff I’d like to wish Warner, Marilynne, Howard and Reece a successful year in office, and all members a healthy and enjoyable golfing season.

Moor Allerton Golf Club – January Greens News

Greens Report January Header1.jpg

Well, the new year certainly hasn’t started with the best weather for golf! Here’s the latest Moor Allerton Golf Club Greens News from our Head Greenkeeper, Adam Matthews.

 

Happy New year to everyone. It seems we have welcomed the new year in the same wet and miserable fashion as we waved goodbye to the old one. You don’t need me to bore you with rainfall stats and weather charts, I think everyone is aware of the relentlessly wet conditions we have had to put up with.

The bad weather doesn’t stop the team from working, in-fact the rest bite it brings from maintaining the course allows us to make great strides with the winter project work. What the bad weather does bring is the need to make sensible and important decisions. It is my job to maintain and produce this golf course to the best standard possible, within the parameters and resources available to us. With that in mind I have to protect the surfaces from lasting and costly damage throughout such periods, and I have to protect my staff and the members.

Closing the golf course isn’t something I like doing, and its never a decision that is taken lightly. 

<img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-866" src="https://i1.wp.com/moorallertongolfclub.co take a look at the site here.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Greens-Report-January-1.png?resize=474%2C167″ alt=”Greens Report January 1″ srcset=”https://i1.wp.com/moorallertongolfclub.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Greens-Report-January-1.png?w=563 563w, https://i1.wp.com/moorallertongolfclub.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Greens-Report-January-1.png?resize=300%2C106 300w” sizes=”(max-width: 474px) 100vw, 474px” data-recalc-dims=”1″ />

Greens

As I said in the previous report I was really happy with the winter preparation work that had been carried out and more importantly the healthy grass coverage. Through studying the local amateur weather forecasts we were able to plan and alter our maintenance programme effectively. The last bout of aeration was carried out with a thicker tine than normal, this would allow the holes to remain open longer, in light of probably not been able to get back onto the greens for a while. This has been very successful and helped water infiltration. We fed the greens with a slow release granular seaweed extract that will remain within the profile and slowly release the nutrients they need to remain strong through the winter months. The greens have stood up to the large amounts of rainfall and we haven’t had any standing water at all.

The most pleasing result for me is the fact that we have completely repelled any moss build up, and through such an extensive wet period that’s really encouraging. If that continues it will be a good cost save on any chemical moss control, and it will also enable us to target the grass species alone during spring renovation.

We have continued to hand mow at around 4.5mm, and with ground temperatures still extremely high for this time of year we have seen no real let up in growth. The Air2G2 work we carried out at the end of October has been a huge success, and i’m delighted that the second phase of this deep aeration process will be carried out again on Monday and Tuesday next week.

 

Greens Report January 2

One of the most noticeable changes, and for me one of the most important over the last few months has been the root depth on the greens. This is purely down to the amount of aeration we have carried out on the greens. These 2 pictures are a before and after shot. Interestingly the shallow rooted, compact and stagnant soil picture was taken in May last year in reasonable dry conditions. The second picture on the same hole was taken last week. There is still a lot of work to do, but now that the sub surface is becoming more aerobic and manageable we can start to make in roads in reducing the Thatch layer in the top 4 inches.

Greens Report January 3

In Play Areas

As you will notice a lot of the in play areas such as the fairways, semi rough and the green surrounds are a lot longer than they usually would be. Unfortunately due to the wet weather we are unable to get any heavy cutting machinery out onto the course until things firm up a bit. The freakishly mild temperatures over the last 6 weeks have meant that the grass hasn’t really stopped growing. We managed to hand cut all 27 green surrounds at the beginning of December, and we will aim to do this again next week if the conditions allow us to.

Tees have been hand cut a number of times, and as I write this report the team are hand cutting the approaches. If the mild temperatures carry on into February we aim to get a head start and carry out some renovation works on the tees and approaches.

We also plan to have the bunkers back in play as soon as possible. I have identified a number of methods to help improve the problematic bunkers on the course. We will be trialling a number of these methods over the next month to see which one will be most affective before we commit to any larger scale operation.

Winter Work

We set ourselves a number of targets towards the end of the summer in regards to what we wanted to achieve with our winter work schedule over the next few years. As a small team covering 27 holes we were realistic, and every member of the green keeping team had an input into what they would like to see done to improve the course. Many of the suggestions were similar and aimed towards attention to detail, and improving the aesthetics of the site as well as playability. The team have excelled expectations and we are actually 2 years in to that plan after 10 weeks.

18th Hole:

The work to open up the hole around the green has been reported already. We plan to put in a small fence around that banking and also to level and improve the strip of rough between the lake and the stream. We will also be grassing and planting wild flower seed into the banking.

While studying some old course and land maps from when the new Moor Allerton Site was been designed, I noticed the wording ‘quarry’ around where the 18th tee is. I was intrigued to see what that could be and was amazed to find hidden in the brash and over growth an old quarry wall. For me, it was a feature that had to be unearthed, put on show and preserved. That has now been done, and further cleaning to the wall area will be done nearer the season. Not only will it benefit the playing surface through extra light and air, I think it adds great character to the hole.

17th Hole:

In my opinion the 17th hole has the potential to be one of the best par 3’s in the area. As you will know better than me the green has been through a number of tough times over the last few years. This has been down to a number of issues. Soil condition, high disease pressure, constant changes in PH levels due to stagnant water build up and lack of percolation. To combat this the 17th has had a slightly tailored aeration and feeding programme compared to the rest of the greens on the course. This has worked very well so far and the green is performing as well as the rest, even through the bad weather period. It was also important that we allowed the green as much day light and air flow as possible. With that in mind we have worked on the boundary area to the right of the green, removing all brash and self seeded Elder, and also thinning the plantation. The old Oak tree within that area was dangerous and had many diseased limbs. We have managed to save the tree by removing the deadwood. Another huge benefit to the work carried out is the playability of the hole. The hazard can now easily be defined, this should speed up play and once complete the stream that will run the length of the hole into the pond will be a fantastic feature.

Greens Report January 4

5th Hole:

You will have noticed already I hope the changes to the boarder of the 5th hole. We have removed a number of trees around the tee area, making the Tee shot a lot better. The team have also removed all the brash and Elder and revealed the stream that stems the full length of the hole. Again this is another superb feature on our course that needs highlighting. It also changes the dynamics of the hole and this area is now easily accessible, and playable with a Red staked hazard boundary and not a white OB.

6th Hole:

The 2 oldest trees on the golf course live within our 6th tee area. They have now been given the opportunity to live for another 400 years! Again 2 fantastic features that needed to be exposed, not only for the health of the trees and the tee area but mainly for everyone to enjoy.

14th Hole:

The matter is in hand and a plan to fix and restore this area is in place and will commence shortly. Id like to thank Howard Armstrong for his help in dealing with this, he has been instrumental in leading the proceedings for us. This area is now roped off and the walkway to the left of the green is closed. Please keep away and abide by the barriers, it isn’t safe to walk on. The rest of the green is playable as normal.

The boundary banking to the right of the 14th has also been attended to by the team and cleared the full length of the hole removing any shrubbery, brash and deadwood. This will improve playability. We have also carried out a lot of work to the area around the green up to the 15th tee again helping the green benefit from extended light.

Greens Report January 5

Id like to thank the club for supporting us in phase 1 of our fleet upgrade plan, and I’m pleased to say we have now agreed a number of deals to purchase some new machinery for the coming season. I’d also like to thank James Whittaker again for his continued support and help on a number of things for our department. It’s very refreshing been able to work closely together on the exciting plans and ideas for our club, and course.

I hope we get some better weather, thanks again for your cooperation, even more so in frustrating times. Please remember its just as, if not more frustrating for us.

I’m sure this years event will be bigger and better with the plans and work already in progress. It will also have extra excitement this year with it being the final event before the season ending Tour Championship”.

The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour 2016 schedule sees them build on its status as the leading satellite to the European Tour.

Daniel Godding, Director of Operations for the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour, said: “2015 was without a doubt our best season ever. We increased prize money, staged our first 72-hole event, saw more players compete than ever before and had the level of the tour recognised by the Official World Golf Ranking and our tournaments now carry World Ranking points. The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour is all about development and the success of our members in 2015 speaks for how strong the tour now is. As well as our top five progressing to the Challenge Tour we saw members gain European and Challenge Tour cards through European Tour Q School last season and we are all excited to see who will make that jump this year.”

“Moor Allerton Golf Club is the only UK course designed by Robert Trent Jones Snr. Situated on high ground above Leeds, the course was once a regular stop on the European Tour and 2015 saw the PGA return to host a EuroPro event. The man charged with bringing the course back to its former glory, and much more besides, is Course Manager Adam Matthews, and he has a clear vision of exactly what he wants to achieve”
