Winter work progress

Greenside bunkers on the Valley 17th are being rebuilt with the collars and green edge being reshaped and returfed. The bunker on the right hand side was not very functional as it was so close to the green edge. Sand build up on top of the bunker over the years has made the turf very stressed. Rootzone has been removed and replaced before returfing.

  

Area of rough between Dunluce 1st and 16th which was overgrown with bracken and bramble has been cleared. This is the first clearance of this type this winter. This work will assist in regaining dune grass land  seen throughout the links.

Sand has returned to the dune at the white cliffs after last years erosion. Amazing how this has reclaimed wind blown sand. Providing we do not see the same high tides as last winter maraam grass will begin to spread through this fresh sand, once again stabilising the dune.
