18th hole/ 5th mounding/ treeline
Work commenced as of October with 5 trees being removed between the 18th and 5th fairway. Final mounding has been constructed with seeding and stone eradication concluded. Irrigation trenches have been dug and irrigation extended to increase watering capacity of the area..
From the 5th the contours should enable the ball to stay higher on the fairway reducing balls heading into the treeline, with the intention that grasses should take over the summer. Couch is now appearing with further seeding/ top dressing we aim to have some coverage by the end of Autumn.
Recent rainfall, sunlight and managing tee marker positions has seen the tees recover very well from high wear and tear. Some recent photos below of some tees.
Please leave bunker rakes on the flat of the bunker facing the direction of the hole after use.
Ropes, Hoops and Traffic areas
Please take a common sense approach as to where to walk and push buggies. Due to the recent change of the local rules on the card as of January 1, we are minimizing the amount of ropes and hoops around the course to increase fairness for competition players. If there is a heavy area please walk around and keep motorized vehicles on paths and on the high/ dry side or fairways and greens at all times.
