Course Update

So the official season of golf is well under way! There is extensive change happening here over the months to come. The full length golf course is certainly taking shape and is now looking as if a golf course thanks to the recent showers and sun. With the course now being fed the growth is certainly going to be evident over the coming weeks.

The tee construction is just about to be finalised with the final tees to be laser graded (this to give a perfect levelled tee, which many golf courses don’t have) and then finally seeded. Then pathways incorporating buggy stops etc will be constructed then extensive landscaping is to follow of the course.

As for the inside, an extensive refit of the existing golf shop is to take place which is to incorporate changing rooms with the provision of the golf course. This would not effect the driving range so we will be open through out the whole refit. A full golf retail shop will follow over the coming months, more information will follow soon.

With the course being at such an integral stage of construction we are working alongside an industry leader to aid in agronomic advice on the nutrition for the golf course. Core samples of both the tees, greens as well as water samples were collected and are currently in the USA for testing. This is to ensure optimum conditions for growth and future course play.
