The Project At A Glance

  • Works have included a complete renovation of all 18 green sites, replacing an old, tired and poorly performing rootzone, with a new rootzone mix.  Greenside bunkers have been revetted.                                                                                           Greens surfaces were returfed using proprietary turf grown in the club’s own 2HA turf nursery. 
  • Tee complexes have been reshaped with the creation of new dunescapes, allowing for a more natural links type feel about the tees. Gravel pathways have been replaced by natural turf paths winding and sitting very natural into the impressive dunescape topography.
    Irrigation has been upgraded on all green sites and on the tee sites that have been rebuilt.
    Kitty’s River has been widened and renovated. Bridges have been constructed using the same natural stone to good effect.
