Rebuilding The 8th Green

This winter we have rebuilt the 8th Green,this was required because the green had several different coloured bands of Clay in the profile .

         Clay stops and slows water draining through the profile a Greenkeepers nightmare.
        We dug out all the Clay bands down to sand then brought in our own rootzone.
                                                 A good day for Turfing !   :  )

The quality of performance/grass types on greens will be reflective of the rootzone they are growing in .

                                                           The Left Hand Side 

This has been a great project to be involved in with big improvements in playability and the variety of recovery shots required from around the green.
