6th Tee Box
After consulting a rep from Consolidate turf we managed to organise a free trial of a machine called a Koro Top Field maker by Campey turf care, this was carried out on the 10th March 2022. The Koro is used for football pitch renovations. The Koro is designed to strip turf off just below the organic matter layer and levels the surface as it goes. Consolidate will be providing the feed programme for recovery after the demonstration. If we do not get sufficient growing temperatures after this work has been carried out the winter tee can be used with little disruption to play. The tee will be back in play within 6 weeks from when sufficient soil temperatures arrive. Should this trial be successful it would be a cost-effective way of removing thatch, levelling, and renewing the tee boxes.
