Fairway protection over the winter period

Thank you to all members and visitors who have participated in the compulsory Fairway protection over the winter period. All golf played from within the designated fairway area was played from a 1.5m square artificial mat, two set out per Fairway.
The 6th and 8th holes were protected all winter, several other Fairways were protected on a rotational basis.
The photographs below demonstrate the success of the project, clearly showing the improved grass sward which has been protected this winter in contrast to the unprotected Fairway last year.
Also noticeable is the enhanced turf colour this April, the mild damp winter has produced favourable conditions for grass plant health.
