As discussed in our recent Course Forum, we have just started a range of winter projects on the golf course. Our goal is to carry out bunker renovation work to continue improving the site, which includes redeveloping holes 5th, 8th, 13th plus the practice chipping area bunkers.

5th Hole Proposed Changes

  • Reduce RHS Greenside Bunker
  • Reduce Fairway Bunker
  • Improve bunker visibility off the Tee
  • Install RHS Fairway Bunker at 279 yds from White Tee
  • Install LHS Fairway Bunker at 259 yds from White Tee

8th Hole Proposed Changes

  • Replace large bunker with two smaller bunkers
  • Create better golf traffic access to green

13th Hole Proposed Changes

  • Reduce RHS Fairway Bunker
  • Increase landing area off the Tee
  • Improve bunker visibility off the Tee

As well as bunker construction, we are also looking to build some more forward “blue” tees.

An impression of the planned bunker works can be seen below. We are planning for these works to be completed in time for the 2018 golfing season.

Additional winter work will be the continuation of:

  • Aeration programme
  • Woodland management
  • Tree planting
  • Drainage projects / ditch clearing

As with all construction project work, these are subject to weather conditions and we will communicate progress regularly throughout the process.

We shall endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum and have all 18 holes in play whenever possible. However, there may be times due to safety that we have temporary greens in play.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Kindest regards,

Agronomy Team
