Banestatus fra vår nye banesjef Gavin Jagger
Dear golfers and members,
As your new course manager it is my job to give you a golf course you will enjoy playing and be proud of.
Unfortunately the condition of the course was far from good when I took over. What I want to do now is look forward, and tell a bit about what I want to do over the next few weeks.
The most important thing for me is to drastically increase verti-cutting and top-dressing routines for fairways and green surroundings. This may affect play at certain times of the year and I hope that our members understand that this will be a benefit to the course. Over time this will give a much better playing surface than we have right now. Add to that our new fertilizer program and I expect to see improvements this season. I will supplement the fairway fertilizing as I don’t think the new fertilizer we tried has been too successful.
The course renovation is essential to develop our course but my main focus will be to maintain and improve playing conditions on existing course. I have started to cut fairway around the greenside-bunkers and will continue with some fairway bunkers too. This will improve the looks of the green complexes to a more inland links style. A new turf nursery will be constructed between red 3 and 5 where we took the turf from and this will be used to grow green and tee turf.
We will continue to spend a lot of time with flymo and strimmer work around ponds, ditches and bunkers and this work will keep the course neat and tidy. We are cutting down a lot of the thicker high rough to help speed of play and to improve the esthetics of the course.
I am really looking forward to making Haga into a top class venue and trust that you will understand that it is not a quick fix and it will take some time, but it will be worth the wait.
Enjoy your day,
Endring av Hull
Greenene på Blå 3 og Blå 4 har blitt angrepet av alger, og er ikke lenger spillbare. Vi kommer til å bekjempe dette med algedreper, men begge greenene må også re-såes for å bli klare til høstsesongen. Reparasjonen vil starte mandag 4.juli.
Ettersom vi skal ha en fullverdig 18 hulls bane med ordinære greener, stenger vi derfor hullene Blå 3, 4 og 5 f.o.m. mandag 4. juli.
Istedenfor vil Gul 1, 2 og 3 inngå i Blå sløyfe.
Det betyr at dette blir vår 18 hullsbane:
Fra og med mandag 4.juli:
Blå 1,2,6,7,8,9, Gul 1,2, 3 + Rød
Medlemsløyfen blir på grunn av dette redusert til Gul 4-9.
Vi kan ikke garanterer åpningsdato for Blå 3 og 4, men vår arbeidsdato er 1.august.
Endringen medfører ingen endring i slope, da banens totallengde ikke endres med mer enn det som er mulig for fortsatt gjeldende slope.
Banen vil fortsatt være hcp tellende.
Indeksen på hullene endres noe.
