A Long Hot Summer
At last we have been enjoying a long hot summer. According to the Met Office July 2013 was the third warmest month ever on record. The UK’s hottest day this year was 33c recorded on 22nd July just up the road at Heathrow. July‘s heat wave was more notable for its duration than its intensity. The extended heat of the summer has taken its toll on golf course greens especially new courses such as Clandon Golf.

Course Maintenance
Starting on Wednesday 28th August (subject to weather conditions) our green keeping team will be carrying out a number of extensive procedures to the course, including aeration and over seeding the greens and tees followed by an application of dressing and fertilizer. Obviously this will cause some disruption, but should be completed over 2 days. Please call if you have any queries.
