Frost Alert

A lot of effort has gone into improving the greens surfaces over the year, fundraising for top dressing sand, solid thining and sanding, Verticutting and fertilising.
If you are 1st out on the course on any day, be it for practise or for competition play The Onus is on the early players to play to the Temp greens if there is frost on the ground. Simply put the white flag into the Temp greens until there is a complete thaw.

Sometimes it will work out that 1 thru 8 will be on Temps & 9 thru 16 on the fulls, but on other days it may be so cold that the full course will be to temp greens.

USGA Studies:Play on frosted greensThe Problem:
Frost-covered turf on putting greens is susceptible to immediate damage from traffic. Ice crystals on and inside the plant can puncture cell walls and cell organs. When foot traffic occurs on heavily frosted turfgrass surfaces, entire plants can be killed, leaving foot-shaped patches of dead turf. Risk Assessment: Damage to the turf will occur immediately, and the symptoms of the damage become obvious as the turf grows. Healing may not occur until the next growing season begins.

Dublin Mountain Win at Dun Laoghaire

The course was in excellent condition and proved a tough but fair challenge for all the teams competing.  The early scoring was good and for a long time it looked like the winning score would be 81 points. However a strong front 9 of 45 points helped Dublin Mountain, led by Captain Brian Cruise prevail and finish with a score of 88 points – winning by 3 points from Milltown with Courtown in third place on 84 points.  Nearest the Pin was Fiachra McCabe from Grange Castle.
Thank you to Dun Laoghaire for making their course available and to all the staff for their help in making this an enjoyable day for all.

 Hi All, We were narrowly beaten today in the All Ireland Fourball V Tullfarris. We had two brilliant wins at home by Gerry Cantwell /Dave  O Driscoll  and Brendan O Connor/Neville Morgan. Unfortunately we lost all three away games. Home advantage most likely cost us victory.
