Prioritised winter work on Dunluce is nearing completion which include, rough management, bunker re-builds, turfing and topdressing. We have been lucky, with no major frost delaying work, but staff have worked through wind and rain to complete all work in areas which we consider to be “in play”.
Contractors have been on site for the last few months carrying out additional ground works to spectator areas, tunnel, fibre for WiFi and other services.
The drainage project on the Valley was the Greenkeepers major task this winter which was carried out and completed through November.
Stream extension is now complete on the 12th meaning that shots which miss the green short right may now find the stream.
Bunker 3rd greenside
Bunker re-build left of 5, and the bunker on the right is now also complete.
Bunker re-build on the 3rd
All cut grass on both courses have been top-dressed and brushed using our new Weidenmann terra brush.
New bunker re-build on the left of 4 was previously hidden from view. We have raised the left side to give a view from the tee.
New semi-rough mower arrived this week.
Bunker re-build right of the 1st fairway creates a stronger challenge with the base being lowered slightly.
Bunker re-build short left of 15 green will be completed on Monday.
