Although the very wet and windy end to the year has not been ideal golfing weather, this has given the golf course a rest.
Mats will again be in play from the 1st of January for use on fairways and semi rough.
After another busy year and with some good progress made we look to 2018 when we host the Boys Championship in August.
The course setup requirements are the same as the Open Championship, so for us, the greenkeeping team this will be a great chance to set up and present the course in a similar way to 2019.
We have made good progress with our winter work programme with most of our larger re-turfing works completed January and February will allow time to build some steps and re-level and enlarge Championship tees on Dunluce 4 & 12 and also Valley 16th ladies tee.
Here are a few pictures from the December works.
