All Gunnamatta tees are currently being top dressed with native dark sand. This will stimulate growth in the wintergreen couch grass and assist with levelling the surfaces.
The new 6th tee at Long Island has been shaped and laser levelled. Santa ana couch grass has been laid. The tee will be open for the first round of club championships.
The overcast, humid weather this week caused by the smoke haze, and recent storm activity, has resulted in a mixture of diseases becoming evident on the greens at Long Island. The picture shows the 18th green with the effects of fairy ring, Pythium and Rhizoctonia. Fungicide has been applied to control the diseases.
