Winter Project Update 9

The last 2 weeks back since the Christmas Holidays have been very challenging , the weather has been even more unhelpfull than normal with raging storms , winter Gailes and hard frosts . 

Our Greenstaff have continued to do a fantastic job even with the challenging conditions .
With the 9th holes location being so exposed the worst storm which hit us literally blew up and ruined 3 days worth of turfing which was pinned down ! Mother Nature is a powerful beast ! 
The greens surround and front approach are nearly completed ,this will lead onto to final prep and turfing of the right hand mouldings .
