Greenkeeper’s Blog

The weather seems to take up more of people’s time in Cornwall than anything else, the stats below make interesting reading. Tom Collings our head greenkeeper started writing his blog in 2013, showcasing all the work that he and his team have done on the golf course. His blog sits in the news section of our website.

The purpose of our blog and the data is to not only keep our local members up to date with what is going on but also our Country members from further afield, whom we might only see a few times a year.

The golf course is a living beast, constantly changing, growing and hopefully improving. In the five years under the current ownership, there have been huge improvements in the design and presentation of the course but also in the playability. The changes in design have been led by course architect Tim Lobb.

Drainage has been a big focus alongside the clearing of a lot of the undergrowth to enable better air circulation around the greens, this in turn has led to massively improved playing surfaces.

This winter 17/18 has brought us record amounts of rain and we are due a sunny, dry spring now. The course has coped well with all the water and we have only had a few course closures.
