 Its all about the trees at the moment.  After some incredibly windy days, clearing of damage has been an ongoing job in the last week.  A number have fallen, plus a few branches have snapped of in problem areas but mainly its just the volume of bits littered everywhere around greens and tees.

Endless tree work

Through the last 5 weeks and probably onto the next 4, we are concentrating on woodland management.
We had planned to start last winter but for obvious reasons are starting a little later.  Dead, diseased and dying trees, plus any poor specimens and rubbish growing out into the fairway line have been removed.  In most places we have gained between 5 and 8 metres on each side of the fairway.  This improves light and air movement to both the rough and the tree canopy.  We are hoping to finish at least 6 holes this winter and continue rolling on in the next 4-5 years before we start it all again.


The first batch of turfing has been finished with 3 bunkers on the Old removed and turfed plus lots of other little areas tidied with the turf.
