From the Green Keeper’s Shed 14 Nov 2018

With the break from Pennant upon us due to the Victorian Open, Warren will be taking the opportunity to do some Minor Maintenance to the greens at Swinburne Avenue.

Over the next few days the team will be completing some minor aeration and scarifying to the greens in line with their normal maintenance. The greens will be slightly slower than normal after the works are complete.

The greens will however be open as per usual during this time.
