Cut and collection of rough land areas



The photograph above shows the rough land area around the pond situated in front of the 9th Tee. The grass land has been mown and the arisings collected up. As part of the winter work other rough land areas around the golf course will have the same treatment. The larger accessible areas are mown with the tractor mounted "Amazone" which cuts and collects the grass.

Development of new short game practice area

Work has now commenced on the development of a three Green short game practice area on the bottom practice ground.
The main goal is to build three Greens, one at 200 sq m and two at 150 sq m in size. The contouring of the Greens will create a wide range of shots with the middle Green 2 having two bunkers built into the Green surround.



Early stages,turf clearing and levelling the old bunker on the 200 sq m Green 1


Green 1 will be set up for longer chip and run shots. The photo above shows the base of the Green built. There are some undulations in the base that do not show up in the photograph.
