We have had to close the course today unfortunately due to the ground conditions being very wet and with a wet day forecast ahead.
After what was a very dry February nature has addressed the balance by giving us a wet March.
We have had 80mm (Over 3”) of rain in 3 weeks with more than half of that falling in the last 10 days and not giving us a chance to dry out enough to allow trollies to be used.
On a positive note this wet spell will help with getting the course to a high standard in the coming weeks by helping the turf to thicken up, but at this moment it is having a detrimental effect.

The rain has returned to Bush Hill Park as we all knew it would, the dry 7 week spell we had from mid-January to Early March had been most welcome and whilst I was trying very hard not to say we needed a drop or two we most certainly did especially with in excess of a 1000m of newly turf laid over the autumn and winter period.
