A summary of Links improvements and Phase 2 works

After the first weekend closure in a number of years, both courses are now back open for play. The strong winds blew powdery dry snow into bunkers and hollows so some snow still remains. Due to the strong winds we also had some severe sand blow from bunkers and construction areas so the clean up process starts tomorrow.

Representatives from the R&A braved the elements last week to view spectator routing in the snow.

The 14th greenside bunker had become soft due to moss and the ball would occasionally stop on the face where we felt that it should continue into the bunker. The whole bunker was stripped and the face re-shaped very slightly. We are really pleased with the result.

An unusual easterly wind removed some bunker sand which we plan to tidy again tomorrow.

Snow had to be removed before the 2 remaining bunker bases could be shaped. Bradley and Conchobhar though that another pair of hands would be beneficial. ☃️ use your initiative I said….
