I have been told that the hollow tining of the greens on the Almerimar course will start on Monday 23 April 2018.
From this date the course will revert back to the summer layout. With the Master 1 (front 9 Master), Master 2 course (back 9 Master) and Master 3 (Classic).
The Master (Master 1 & 2) course will be closed for 2 weeks while the work is completed and the greens start recovering. During this team anyone wanting to play 18 holes will have to play twice around the Master 3 (Classic) course.
The Master (Master 1 & 2) course is scheduled to reopen on Monday 7 May 2018. I guess that sometime soon after that the Master 3 (Classic) course will close for a week or two for similar work.
Just a quick personal view on the winter layouts that are being tried this year. I feel that overall they have been a success. Allowing more people on the course and getting us all around in the light almost all of the time. There were some days when the people playing in the morning were too slow. Causing a hold up in the afternoon. Hopefully this issue will be resolved in time for the upcoming busy period in the rest of February and March.
One good thing Juan is getting done at the moment is clearing the areas under trees so it is easier to find your ball. Hopefully this should help speed up play.
