Daniel Beltrán, gardener at Club de Golf Alcanada, informs us about the flora you can see at Alcanada. The latest subject is the “dimorphotheca”, known as the daisybushes or African daisies, belonging to the Calenduleae, one of the smaller tribes of the sunflower/daisy family Asteraceae.
Daniel Beltrán, gardener at Club de Golf Alcanada, talks to us of the “Chamaerops humilis”, more commonly known as palmetto, European fan palm or the Mediterranean dwarf palm, in the palm family Arecaceae.
Borja Azpilicueta, director of golf course grounds at Alcanada, tells us how the Alcanada renovation project has progressed, before the grand reopening:
This month, Daniel Beltrán, gardener at Club de Golf Alcanada, talks to us of the “Podranea ricasoliana”, commonly known as pink trumpet vine or Pandora bush. It is a vine of the bignonias family from South Africa.
Daniel Beltrán, our gardener at the Club de Golf Alcanada, talks to us about the Bougainvillea or "Bougainvillea spectabilis", which provide such amazing colour around the club.
Borja Azpilicueta, director of golf course grounds at Alcanada, explains the benefits and characteristics of the new type of ZOYSIA GEO grass, which has been installed in the locker room yard and in the men’s and professional tees of the seventh hole.
With the help of Daniel Beltrán, gardener of Club de Golf Alcanada, we are going to show you the diversity of plants that can be seen in the club.
The high season is in full swing at Club de Golf Alcanada. In our commitment to provide the best possible service and experience to our golfers, a huge amount of work goes on every day to keep the golf course in prime condition.
In keeping with the course improvement plan established by Alcanada Golf , we have been working during the last few months the access to the 10th hole. This work has entailed the replacement of the wooden walkway which linked the 9th hole to the 10th. Now, there is a Stone built bridge which not only is more stable (especially in times of heavy rains) but much more in keeping with the rural environment in which the course sits. In addition it provides a better service to customers and members of our golf course.
Like every winter in a few weeks the temperature will start to lower and our grass will gradually lose its green colour. As usual we will overseed fairways, tees and roughs in order to maintain the green colour all year round. This year we will overseed most of the rough areas except for some which are some how out of play. We start seeding on the 3rd of november if the weather is appropriate. We will use Lolium perenne “equate”, new generation perennial ryegrass.
