NEW “RES­I­DENTS” AT VIC­TORY

GOLFE - - SPECIAL REPORT -

The Vic­to­ria main­te­nance team have one more prob­lem to over­come in the day-to-day care of the fair­ways, but es­pe­cially greens, with the dis­cov­ery of new res­i­dents. Not long ago, ot­ters were de­tected in the cour­ses lakes and the “dis­cov­ery” was fol­lowed by a bi­ol­o­gist from Zooma­rine, who counted about 30 an­i­mals. Vic­to­ria GC has seven lakes that abut seven fair­ways and are next to six greens. And at a short dis­tance south of the 16th and 17th holes there is a vast area of ponds with dense veg­e­ta­tion, con­ducive to a safe habi­tat for the ot­ters. A equipa da manutenção do Vic­to­ria pas­sou a ter mais uma di­fi­cul­dade a su­perar nos cuida­dos diários a ter com a relva dos fair­ways, mas so­bre­tudo dos greens, com a de­scoberta dos novos res­i­dentes. Há pouco tempo foram de­te­tadas lon­tras nos la­gos do campo e a “de­scoberta” pas­sou a ser acom­pan­hada por um biól­ogo do Zooma­rine, que con­tabi­li­zou já cerca de 30 an­i­mais. O Vic­to­ria tem sete la­gos que en­volvem sete fair­ways e es­tão junto a seis greens. E a curta dis­tân­cia, a sul dos bu­ra­cos 16 e 17 há uma vasta área de lagoas com veg­e­tação densa, prop­i­cia a um habi­tat se­guro para as lon­tras.
