Peter Morgan of the Victoria Park Valley Grounds crew making last minute repairs before the golf course opened on Saturday. There was a tremendous amount of work done the last few days before we opened. I would like to thank all staff from both the Valley, the East course and contractors who all worked together to make it happen. One hundred and fiftey golfers came to play on Saturday and all the comments were very positive.
The grounds staff will continue to make repairs and improvements throughout the season. Although is has been quite dry this is the perfect time to overseed or sod areas on your home lawn. Soil temperatures need to be at least 10 degrees C for seed to germinate. Soil temperature will reach this when air temperatures are consistantly around 15 to 20 degrees. With the mild temperatures forecasted this week we should reach these temperatures. Good luck and feel free to contact me with your questions.
Until next time …
