IT was a long day on the course for some players when the members played in the January Farmers’ Agri-Care Monthly Mug last Saturday.
The green keeper found it more tough going than others, he started early with setting up the mowers and then took to the tee box.
With four of the greens having had severe verticutting, tough kikuyu rough in places and greens that are hard and a little bumpy, the tough dry summer conditions are slowly taking their toll on the course.
St Cathryn's is proud of Justin Harrison who flew off to Dubai on Sunday to work on the golf course where the Dubai Desert Classic will be played this coming week. As a youngster Justin spent many holidays at St Cathryn's playing golf, mowing greens and trimming the green surrounds with Steve. After school he went to study green keeping and was selected to be part of the green-keeping staff for this big tournament that draws professional golfers and players in the top 100 ranking. Well done Justin, and have a fantastic time.
