Maintenance update

posted in: Newsletter Aug 2018 | 0

Around the golf course golfers will see some ongoing maintenance works from August to November. As part of our commitment to continually improve the golf course, we will be extending the surface area of tees to improve conditions (holes 2, 3, 4, 7, 9 & 18). In addition, we are moving blue tee on hole 3 further right (to allow space for the cart path), making a new red tee on hole 4 (directly in front of the white) and moving tees on hole 18 further right to afford a better angle to hit the fairway.

 

Furthermore, in an effort to improve pace of play, we are extending the cart path in some areas. This will improve the flow of play over holes 2-4, helping golfers and caddies get closer to the tee areas (holes 3, 4, 9 & 10/11). These works whilst extensive, will be planned and completed with minimal affect to golfers play.

*The process of coring and top dressing is essential in the overall health of the grass and enables us to achieve smooth, premium playing surfaces. The greens should take around 1 week to recover to a reasonable standard, then no more than 3 weeks to be back to top level.
