Preparing for the 2018 Season

The RBC Maintenance Team have been especially busy over the winter months.
Over 120 yards of old, rotten, slippy and potentially dangerous sleepers were removed from around the edges of the green and replaced with brand new, specially treated, ones.
This was a major, back-breaking exercise.
Our new SiSIS AutoRoto Rake Mk5 - a very sophisticated piece of scarifying equipment - was delivered on Tuesday 13 March 2018.
It comes with interchangeable scarifying reels for use in both summer and winter.
Regular scarifying will increase the speed of the playing surface - in conjunction with 'Symbio' lawn treatment - to remove many years of deep-lying 'thatch'.
