WALK AND TALK

A number of greenkeepers from the BIGGA Scottish Central section visited Montrose Links today. This was a follow on from a photo presentation that I carried out for the section in Auchterarder earlier in the year.
Discussing the history and ecology information boards.

We have witnessed a month of almost constant dry sunny days and today was no different although there was a strong wind blowing in from the sea. During the walk a number of topics were discussed including course management, erosion issues and ecology.

Heading up the 1st fairway towards the green on the 1562 course.

On the 2nd tee looking at the coastal erosion.

After the walk we had a brief tour of the Greenkeeping maintenance sheds and our fleet of machinery together with the mechanics workshop.
 It's good to hear other greenkeepers' thoughts, share ideas and find out how they are managing their courses. I would like to thank the Central section for asking me to undertake the walk and talk, A really enjoyable and worthwhile afternoon.
