Following the major works on our greens in September, it is worth reflecting on the effect the new drainage has had on the 5 greens.
Over the past week or so, the course has endured a lot of heavy rainfall which historically, would have led to the closure of the 5 holes; 2, 6, 8, 9 & 12.
As you can see from the photos below, the 5 historically worst greens have remained dry and playable while other greens have suffered heavy casual water retention.
HGK Richard is delighted with the results of the drainage work, and plans similar works at the end of next season in 2024 to further improve another 5 greens.
Richard is to be congratulated for his vision and faith in the works, and also the Board for financially investing and supporting the project for the long term good of the Golf Club.
Not forgetting all those essential and willing volunteers who helped to make it happen.
You will no doubt have noticed the successful refurbishment of the 18th footbridge.
This is another investment made by the Board to ensure the continued use of the footbridge into the future.
Our thanks go to Paul & Mick Edgar whose company have made such a fantastic job of the refurbishment, and to Club Director James Else for arranging the essential works.
Thank you all for your patience during the upgrading works, and I’m sure you will agree that it is great to see the investment being made by the Board into the future of our golfing facilities.
