Aitkens Turf Update - April 15

Welcome to our April issue of Aitkens Turf Update!


Well it is nice to see that we have had some weather this week! Hopefully this is the start to a good season.

Augusta is on the TV this weekend which will put pressure on Golf Greenkeepers throughout the land with the annual cry of "Why is our course not like that"

The Bowls and Cricket seasons all get under way this month as well putting pressure on the greenkeepers for the opening days.

Well lets hope if we have a decent few weeks of weather it will help all types of turf greenkeepers to have the best possible turf for their club.

We also have some interesting offers on our products. Please contact our office or your local technical representative to find out more.
