Course work: This month has seen the start of work on the bunkers to bring them up to standard. We have also undertaken the aeration of all the greens and tees.   Aeration helps to stimulate growth by the increase of air to the growing medium, commonly referred to as the rootzone,  which is made up of differing proportions of soil solids (mineral and organic material) and soil pores (for water and air).  Maintaining the correct balance of these components is critical for sustaining healthy plant growth. The spaces between the particles of solid material are just as important to the nature of soil, as are the solids themselves. It is these pore spaces which create the environment for the plant to obtain the necessary nutrients, air and water it requires to respire and grow.
