Course Manager’s Report


In April, at Clandon Golf, we had 161mm of rainfall. This is about 30% of the total rainfall we had last year! The cold night time temperatures have meant that the soil temperature did not rise significantly – hence the reason that the grass did not grow as one would expect. This has meant that the winter wear did not recover as soon as we would have liked.


The grass is now just starting to grow a little – particularly the rough. However, the continued wet conditions have stopped us doing as much cutting as we would have liked. In these circumstances we are faced with the dilemma – do we cut and make a mess or wait for it to dry out? All greens, tees and approaches have been fertilized and bunkers topped with sand.

Greens will be dressed and over-seeded as soon as we get the weather for doing this work.

Please make use of the new broken tee bins.
