Phase 2 works and Winter works Update

Another productive week on the Course has seen more bunkers rebuilt on holes 4, 11, 13 and 17.

Levelling work has continued well on the old 18th and the dry weather this week was a real bonus.

Greens 1, 2 & 10 were today solid tined with a larger than normal 19mm tine to a depth of 7 inched before holes were filled with dry sand. This will improve firmness, dryness and general turf health by breaking compaction and creating fissures and channels for new roots to develop.

See below, some of the before and after pictures of bunker work this week.

11th greenside

The green surround on Dunluce 4th was lifted, reshaped and re-turfed with better quality turf, making the levels flow better and also improving the quality of grass there.

There is a large area between the Dunluce 13th and 15th greens which was poor generally. The shape of the ground was disrupted by mole ploughing work and as it is close to both greens we decided to lift this and repair. The area will be re-turfed using the Dunluce 17th fairway with will knit with the surrounding area well.
