Our team of greenkeepers take care of everything to do with the course, from everyday tasks such as cutting and bunker raking, to larger projects such as drainage and irrigation.
Below you can find a record of work being undertaken by our greenkeeping team and read the latest updates on current and planned projects. Reports are written by Head Greenkeeper Graham Careford, contact him using the online enquiry form.

It’s been great to see so many members out playing this week. The sunnier and drier conditions we have had this week have certainly had a positive impact on the course with it looking and playing the best it has all year.

Thankfully the rain we have had has at last come to a stop, for the time being at least. Since we started our bunker project on the 17th September it seemed to not stop. We recorded 193.5mm (that’s nearly 8” in old money!) in the 6 weeks after the work started, making it very hard to get on with the phase 2 of the project, which was to be done in-house by my team.

As you will be aware we have been forced to close the course recently and put in place a total buggy ban due to the heavy rain we had at Bush Hill Park. This is not something that we take lightly in the greenkeeping team but unfortunately on this occasion we were left with no other choice.

Things at Bush Hill seem to have really kicked into gear over the last month. We are now operating as a team of 6, tree works to open the 15th and 17th tees have been completed, the last of the trees from the survey have been done in accordance with the survey recommendations, we have had new machines delivered and the groundworks for our major bunker projects will have been completed.
