European Ladies Amateur Championship
Following on from my last post, another one of the guys has been busy assisting at a tournament. This time for the European Ladies Amateur Championship at Diners Club in Ljubijana, Slovenia. Martin Brown who is working with us as a seasonal greenkeeper made the trip out to what proved to be an amazing experience for him. Slovenian native and previous seasonal with us at The Duke’s, Aljosa Golob looked after Martin for the week in which saw him getting involved in as much as he could to help out the Head Greenkeeper, Vanja Drasler and her team. Vanja came on a study tour to Scotland last year when she spent a day with us and visited various other courses in the area. Congratulations to her and the team for what was a successful tournament.

Meanwhile here at The Duke’s we have been dealing with the continued heavy rain by repairing bunkers and will be installing some additional drainage in some areas which have become a problem in the past few months. The greens have stood up really well to the rainfall and remain in good condition which has been a challenge this year so far. Maybe summer will arrive when the school holidays are over!.
