Bunker Renovation – Phase 3 update

Early Morning

The final phase of work to the golf course is nearing completion. The weather delayed work last week with the course battered by rain and high winds. Despite this work remains on schedule. 600 metres of turf was laid on Tuesday with another 600 metres ordered for Thursday (weather dependant) The aim is to complete turfing to the 12th and 14th holes leaving the 10th green surround and 11th approach, 12th tee. The fire damage to the 10th green has been repaired with 73 plugs removed. With some top dressing and rolling the plugs should knit together and grow in to match the rest of the green. The 4th greenside has been contoured, a new drain installed and turfed. The 5th greenside has seen the successful installation of sleepers and revetted turf. Additional ropes/white lines have been placed across the approaches of selected holes. This is to manage traffic and limit damage through the winter months. It is important to protect  the turf as damage caused now will remain all winter. Orange posts marking the golf course boundary have been placed to the left of the 11th green. In addition white out-of-bounds posts define the line of play. Despite the onset of winter the course remains in good shape. The weather is due to turn colder in the next week with the potential for snow in early December.

  1. Excellent work by all involved. I must say the course is looking better and better every time I see it. I am really very impressed with the design and construction work, and the work that has gone into the integration of the heather. Excellent photos and update information too.
