Richard Wing from the Sports Turf Research Institute will be working with Inverness Golf Club to give us his support and expert advice to improve our greens. Richard has improved the greens of golf courses throughout the UK including many parkland courses in the Glasgow area and local courses. The objective of our Green Renovation programme is to significantly improve the playing surface of the greens all year round and we now have a programme that will accomplish that over time. An example of the improvements is the speed of the greens when tested (6th September) by Richard. They were running at 8 ft 10 in – 1ft 1in faster than the most recent reading in June.
As part of our focus on improving the surface of our greens year round the club has invested in an Air2G machine. Here is the aeration machine at work on the practice area. The Air2G will be used to complement our coring process, reduce the impact on the putting surface and make our greens as smooth as possible. The club will be working with Richard Wing from STRI as part of our greens renovation programme.
