Latest update 29th December - The clubhouse build is well on the way and all the new holes have been completed.
The clubhouse roof should be finished by the end of January and the building will then be completely water tight.
The new 5 holes that will come into play in 2022. The mitigation landscaping work is well underway and will be completed in the spring.

Scrolling down the page you will see how the work has progressed since January to December.
