The Club is now closed for all activities to members, the greens team continue to work on the green in preparation for 2023. See story below.

To improve drainage on the green it was drilled and filled by a specialist company on Thursday 5th October.

The Drill & Fill work went very well with an estimated 40,000 holes to aid the drainage.

The soil brought up by the drills was a clay mix so spreading it would have been difficult and entirely unproductive! Instead the Ecosol lads scooped it all up and barrowed it behind the cuttings bin.

The whole exercise involved moving nearly 6 tonnes of sand in 20kg bags from in front of the pavilion to wherever the machine had got to on the green. The lads certainly put in a whole days work starting just before 09:00 and finishing around 18:00.

Re-seeding took place on Saturday 14th October so hopefully come the spring it should be in good condition.

According to Richard, after inspection of the green on Wednesday 25th Oct , the drill & fill seems to have worked and after several downpours there was no sign of puddles or saturated ground.
