Golf Course Plan of Action

Dear Valued Woodhill Member,

As you may be aware our Course Superintendent Hugo van den Berg has resigned after 8 & ½ years of dedicated service. We wish Hugo well with his future endeavours and thank him for all he has done for Woodhill. We are working on finding a world class replacement for our Course Superintendent.
We have embarked on a critical assessment of the golf course so as to ensure we achieve the higher standards we aspire to. To this end, there is a detailed plan of action to address immediate pressing challenges.
These include:

  • Greens – patches – purchase in instant bent lawn replacement immediately for all patches
    • Additional plans in place to fertilise and address burnt / stressed patches
  • Gardens – employ an additional 6 casuals to weed gardens, trim edges and general tidying up
  • Laser level tee boxes
    • Critical Yellow / White / Blue tees starting Wednesday 14th February
    • Red tees to be done after Ladies / Junior Club Champs
    • Unfortunately we don’t have time to do the Red Tees before club champs due to insufficient time to bed them in
  • Overhanging trees across the entire golf course – immediate team to trim and clean up
  • Indigenous areas – total tidy up with casuals and golf course team, immediately, including removing kikuyu around edges, cutting edges etc.
  • “Os Gras” program – all of these weeds are to be treated / dabbed, cut, removed across the entire golf course but with a critical program for this weed encroaching on tee boxes, fairways, cart paths, and greens
  • Kikuyu in greens and encroaching in cut line – immediately remove, and tidy up
  • Tree bowls – cut long grass around all tree bowls through the green
  • Bunkers – immediate plan to address, loosen soil, replace soil in some bunkers 

We have spent a great deal of money this past financial year purchasing the latest equipment to assist in improving the condition of our golf course.
The above list is not exhaustive and you can rest assured the golf course is receiving high focus from everyone involved.
We appreciate any and all feedback from our members so as to continually improve and ensure all have a great golfing experience at Woodhill.

Kind Regards

Woodhill Management
