Our annual visit from an agronomist from the Sports Turf Research Institute to inspect and report on our greens has resulted in very favourable comments about the smoothness and speed of the greens at Monifieth. The written report will be made available to members as soon as it is received. However, the inspection showed that 2 greens (6th and 9th on the Medal course) were showing some signs of compaction, and this will be dealt with by aerating these 2 greens by mini-tining week commencing Monday 1st September.

There should be little disruption to the quality of the putting surface, but members may notice tine marks for a short period. This treatment at an early stage is done to provide high quality greens in the longer term.
