Latest update 22nd June - All holes are fully in play and looking fantastic. There are a few areas of newly seeded grass that are GUR and any ball coming to rest in these areas must be left a ball played without penatly from the nearest point of relief. The newly seeded areas are well off the play line so will only affect the most wayward of shots.
The clubhouse foundations are in place and the steel shell will shortly be erected. The new 5 holes that will come into play in 2022 are well underway. The 1st and 3rd holes have had the cores and seed applied and are now beginning to grow as the photos below show. The greens for holes 2 and 4 are complete and are just awaiting the next "coring" which will take place 9/10th July. The fifth green is under construction and will be ready for seeding in 3 three weeks.
Scrolling down the page you will see how the work has progressed since January to June.
The video at the bottom shows the transformation of the 18th green from January to today. This looks fantastic!!!
