Now we are heading towards Christmas, and I just want to update you all on what we have been doing lately and what we will be doing in the New Year 2018.
As you know we have removed the ditch in front of Blue 3 green and replaced it with another bunker. We are now doing some additional drainage in front of the green and around the new bunker. This area will be turfed in the spring.
The front of the green on Blue 4 has been reshaped and the small ditch at the back of the green has been taken away.
On Blue 5 on the right hand side of the green we have lifted up the rough area so the slope is much less steep, we have filled up almost 2m in parts. This will improve the playability of the hole greatly. A new path will be made in the spring.
Over to Red 1 and the left hand side of the green will be raised by 1-2m between the green and the tee on Red 2. This area has always been very poor and this work will improve both the look and the drainage of the hole.
We will also continue to put in more drainage around the course. We have put in more drainage in front of the greens on Blue 1 and Yellow 1 and around tee 46 on Yellow 2.
In the new year we will do a lot of drainage on Red 7 fairway and Red 1 fairway and on the left side of tee 46 on Red 1. We have also been clearing the greens and tees, the snow followed by mild weather and rain has not been ideal but we have kept on top of it as best we can.
I hope you all had an enjoyable season in 2017 and I look forward to an even better one in 2018.
From myself, Bally and Yngve we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
