Welcome from the greenkeeping team at Morecambe Golf Club.

Welcome to the Greenkeeping and course management information centre. This blog site has been set up to allow the sharing of information regarding agronomy, course management/ presentation and the development of the playing surfaces at Morecambe Golf Club.
Morecambe is an Alistair Mackenzie designed golf course, a maritime parkland with undulating Greens and Fairways.
The blogs will show day to day tasks and also specific posts on management techniques carried out.
For example, the Greens are managed with the aim of promoting and developing a Fescue/ Bent grass sward. All management techniques including mowing, turf refinement, aeration, fertilising, top dressing and water management are aimed at developing the desirable Fescue/Bent sward. These grasses help to produce playing surfaces that are playable for 12 months of the year and are promoted using sustainable practices.
