Hopefully, you will all acknowledge that, in time, these changes will improve maintenance practices and add to the playability of these areas.
The 2nd green complex now has a much smaller bunker left of the green. In front of this, we will turf this roll off area and now it as part of the approach. Behind the green, this area now falls off nicely.
Each new tee has been laser levelled and the old, rotting sleepers have been removed. They all now have a tee bank that can easily be mowed. We stripped the turf off the 9th tee and this has been used to re-turf the new ladies 4th tee.
Lastly, the 9th tee has been shifted to the left and this allows all of the tee to be utilised for teeing up the ball. This newly shaped tee also aims directly to the centre of the 9th green.
Although there are several areas that will require turfing and seeding, we are condident that this work will be finished within the next 4-6weeks (weather permitting). In any event, these areas will all be ready for play for the new 2015 golfing season.
Many thanks to Tom, Len, the Captain and Phil Lockett for assistance with turfing this week.
Have a great weekend and enjoy your golf!
