Great progress has been made by Lakeland Earthworks this week, bearing in mind that the weather has been quite trying. The 8th tee has been shaped, levelled and capped with rootzone.
All that remains is for it to be turfed and to have an artificial grass mat installed into the back of the tee. By early February, this should look finished and we will then keep our fingers crossed for some favourable weather so that the new turf can establish before April.
This tee is the fifth new tee that has been constructed this winter as part of our golf course master plan. Very soon, the new 4th tee will start to be constructed and that will be the sixth and last new tee to be constructed as part of the 2014/15 course improvements. Fantastic!
