Course Manager’s Report – May 2020

My name is Carl Sharp and I’m honoured to be your new Course Manager. I have been lucky enough to work at some of the best golf courses in Surrey and I am looking forward to bringing my knowledge and experience to Clandon.

I am glad to see the return of all the golfers. As you might have seen already we have been hard at work with the greens. We have hollow cored all of them which helps reduce compaction and thatch and stimulates growth of roots and new seed. We then added 35 Tons of sand which helps with drainage and improving the profile of our greens, It also thins out any unwanted grasses and thatch. While the speed might not be there at the moment, they are very true.

We have started edging out the bunkers and I’m sure you will probably agree that the new fairway shapes are looking better.

Hope everyone is safe and well and looking forward to seeing you all on the course.

Kind regards

Carl Sharp
