The drainage work on the first tee has been completed as planned. We installed over 100m of drain runs to the area, all of which connect to a large soak away to the left of the tee. To maintain the effectiveness of the drains we will seed the runs as opposed to turfing them, this does mean that the drains will be visible for a few months but once the seed has germinated and established all should blend in nicely. The whole area will be solid tined, fertilised, top dressed and over seeded in the next few weeks.
With a trencher on hire we took the opportunity to install a drain to the front right of the 11th green, this will solve a water collection problem that has occurred over the past few wet months.
