2016 has come to an end and we now head into the new year with lots to look forward to. The year started very wet and although things dried up quickly the temperatures remained well below average for the first 6 months. This saw conditions frequently bringing mist and fog and whilst the course was in prime condition, we lost quite a few days through course closure due to a lack of visibility.
The new year will see us continue our focus on the bunkers. We’re still a way off refurbishing all the bunkers, but by the start of the new season, there will be a noticeable difference in their appearance and their day to day condition. As mentioned in previous blogs, the bunkers are being altered to be more in keeping with the style of our course, with a mixture of rugged, natural type bunkers bordering the fairways and a more typical seaside style, pot bunker by the greens.
