Finally spring is here and I’m happy to say I can report good news. The course has come out looking good from the winter and it looks positive that we will open the course without the same problems as last year. All the greens and tees have been cleared of snow and most of them are now showing grass.
Next week the greens will have covers put over them to help keep in moisture and help protect them from the cold mornings that are forecast for next week. The range will open once it is clear of snow, not easy to say an exact date, but this will be done as soon as possible.
As most of you know Drammen Golfbane went bankrupt last year and because of this we now have a very basic machine park, but more than enough to get us through the season. The club have invested in a new greens and fairway mowers and I’m sure the course will benefit massively from this investment. The club have taken control of the course maintenance for the first time this year and it will time a little time to get it up to the standard that club desires, but again we are confident this can be done.
Last but not least, the pumphouse has had a new pump installed the week also. This should help with getting enough water out on the course when it’s needed, but we’re still hoping that the summer isn’t as dry as it was that season.
There will be a weekly update from now on so that we can keep everyone informed. Please remember that the range and course will open as soon as they are ready for play, thank you for your patients.
