Course update

With Christmas fast approaching last week was spent winterising the irrigation system and carrying out more re-turfing work.

The Valley 1st tee is the next tee to be realigned, rotovated, levelled and re-turfed. The levels were poor after many years of play and the tee was aligned to the mounding on the right of the hole.

The tee will be re-turfed with imported 100% fescue and the best of the existing turf was used to create a better run off to the rear of the Valley 13th green. This area was very short of root zone and would dry out and become weak every summer.

Chris and Ben were in their element last week cleaning the irrigation tank and draining the system in preparation for any severe frost.
