8th green re-turfed

The Dunluce 8th green was laid this weekend after another great effort from the 1st golf construction team. The team made the most of a very brief break in the weather. The green was re-laid yesterday and the approach laid today before torrential rain left surrounds unworkable.  

New par 5 Dunluce 7th

Tee tops are now being turfed on the new 7th hole which will be a stunning par 5 playing through what was the Valley 5th & 6th.

View back towards the tees on the new 7th. All turf and rootzone must be stripped next to allow new shapes to be added for the new hole.

Discussions today on spectator routing and grandstand placements for the 2019 Open.
