1st Bunker works

1st Bunker works

For the week commencing February 10th works will commence on the  1st hole bunkers.

THE HOLE WILL BE CLOSED OFF WHEN THE MAIN WORK IS UNDERWAY, TO PROTECT THE GREENS TEAM COMPLETING THE PROJECT

A- The left hand side “card wrecker” will have a foot taken off the top and it will be reshaped to create two pot bunkers with grass banking to a flat level sand base.

B- The right side bunker will be relocated further back to create a small grass banked bunker level to the mid point of the green again to a  flat sand base, the existing bunker will be filled, smoothed and turfed flat.

The plan is to also widen and  lenghten the short cut grass approach, this will allow for the new bunker to catch the long wide ball, but also provide a better run in zone to the green , the relocated bunker will provide for a better “bale out” area for anyone trying to avoid the traps to the left .

The rear left bunker will be worked on at a later stage.
