Our objective was to finish the area left of the 2nd green, comprising the new bunker complex.
The above photo was taken about 3 weeks ago during the very early stages of reducing the size of this bunker and improving the contouring and maintenance around the left side of the 2nd green complex.
The photo above shows the very speedy progress that was made on Wednesday, thanks to some much appreciated volunteer assistance.
Once this turf has rooted in, we will revisit this bunker to shape the base, test the existing drainage, add bunker sand and re-edge the bunker. However, this area will appreciate a nice break for the time being to recover!!!
We also made a start on the new 4th greenside bunker complex this week. Although we won't be able to finish the turfing of this area or the 9th tee until the New Year (the turf company has closed for Christmas now!!), we anticipate finishing all of this work by the end of the first working week of January.
This should then give all of these re-turfed areas plenty of time to establish before the 2015 golf season.
Many thanks to Alan Cooper, Phil Lockett, Mike Hall (& his 2 lads) and Tom Frame for assisting with the turfing work this week.
Please have a fantastic Christmas and New Year, and enjoy your golf!
