The 18th Looks A Bit Rough
Fear not, if you come to play at Ilkley Golf Club, the greens don't look like this right now, but they did a couple of weeks ago. If you look carefully at the front of the green there is a series of pockmarked holes in a regular pattern, these are made by a hollow tine machine to improve the drainage and playability of the greens. All 18 greens were hollow tined to keep them in good order, then dressed with sand. They are now looking beautifully green and are ready for the members and visitors over the coming winter.
