The greens were fertilised on Friday with an NPK slow release fertiliser to assist in recovery of our green after renovations and the timing of this application couldn't have been better with 74mm of rain falling since it was applied. In total we have had 149mm of rain in the past week which is more than enough.
Forecasts for the next few days are looking more promising so hopefully we can string a few days of warm weather to help dry out the soil profile of the greens and see even more recovery over coming weeks. We manage to get the greens cut again this morning in amongst the rain and will gradually work towards resuming our normal morning mowing regime. Generally it takes around 4-5 weeks until you see full recovery from greens renovations so please bare in mind how delicate and soft the greens are during this time and ensure extra care is taken when walking on green/ensure pitch marks are being repaired to reduce further damage.
Below are a couple of photos showing the turf recovery of the 18th green after 2 weeks.
