Spring has arrived


At long last spring has come, with day time and evening temperatures rising 5-6 degrees. Some growth will see fairways recover from recent tining and sanding. Germination of seed should be more evident throughout both courses and also new holes on both courses will progress well now. 

Green staff have been battling through a long winter and what has been achieved in spite of the weather is commendable with 22 new bunkers throughout the links and rebuilding or reshaping of almost all other bunkers on the Dunluce course.

The construction includes;

5 new holes plus 2 on the Skerries

7 new greens plus 2 on the Skerries 

35 new tees including the new Open range tee

Only 2 gravel paths remain on the Dunluce course after replacing others with irrigated turf.
