Just a few updates for members regarding the new machinery at Allen Park. Richard has worked hard to get capital in place to purchase new machinery for Allen Park. He was successful in being awarded capital to purchase up to nine new machines for the centre. So far we have received 4 new machines: (See a few pictures attached)
o Bunker Rake
o Rough Mower
o Greens Roller
We hope to receive the remaining 5 machines in around March 2020 just before the start of the new season approaching. We also appointed a new grounds person – Daryl Ross who has settled in well, and this appointment along with the new machines coming on board we hope to progress the course further next year and continue to make on going improvements.
Currently over the winter months the greens keepers will be debranching and trying to tidy in and around the tree lines around the course. All the green keepers will also be undertaking Digger training courses so that we can do our own in house drainage improvements when the weather improves.
The yellow pin location flags have been ordered to indicate whether the flag is either front, middle or back and once they arrive we will ensure to get them out ASAP.
Once we have our next Greens committee in around the end of January 2020 we will have more updates on the additional machines we will be receiving and further course updates.
