The players tunnel is now progressing well with the top section quickly being constructed. This should be finished by next weekend ready for reinstatement of the dunes.
Conchobhar Kerr, one of the Royal Portrush green staff has been volunteering at Royal Troon for the last 2 weeks. Here are some photos of his experiences.
Congratulations Conchobhar, job well done 👍
Fantastic day at Royal Troon today for practice day, course is in super condition. Credit to all of the team for this years Open Championship.
Himalayan balsam has been cut to the rear of the 4th green and through to the burn at the 5th. Most of this was done using bull hooks and a hedge knife but the large area between the 5th tee and the stream was done with the flail mower on the excavator.
New short game area is growing in nicely and the green received its first cut this week.
Bracken has been cleared from the 2nd fairway side of the Giants grave. We used bull hooks to cut the bracken before taking off and removing. This method works much better than strimming and it’s quicker too!
