Anthracnose Folliar Blight ( Colletorichum cereale ) 

Anthracnose is most common on Poa annua but can also affect other grasses. The disease pathogen can cause two types of disease depending on weather conditions. Antracnose causes the leaf to turn yellow with irregular patches. Basal rot begins after the yellowing of the older leaves. It can also cause younger leaves to turn brick red in the later stages of its development. Anthracnose is predominantly a stress related disease. With the hot dry summer we have had it has caused extra stress the plant, this coupled with the leaner nitrogen programe has resulted in an outbreak. We have applied a fungicide and fertiliser to help combat any further outbreaks. 

 

1st Tee

We are looking into the option of installing a rope fence around the 1st tee to replace the current wooden rails. The rope fence would help towards increasing the general grass coverage on the 1st tee by allowing traffic to go through certain sections of the fence and preventing golfers just generally standing on the tee thus creating an even wear across the tee. 

 

15th / 16th gorse thinning

We have started our gorse thinning programme behind the 15th green. The gorse has been cut back to the stumps allowing regeneration to take place. The gorse around the course is starting to get very long and leggy which is creating vertical growth with very little latteral growth. The rhododendrone was pruned down to the roots allowing stronger new growth to come through. Some  trees have been felled to allow more air movement and light to naturally dry the 15th green therefore naturally reducing the chance of a disease outbreak.
