BUNKER RENOVATIONS UPDATE - Works Completed!

Bunker renovations have been completed with the redesigned bunkers having some 'new' speciality sand placed within them at the recent 'Grey Army' working bees.

All bunkers are now 'in play'.

What a 'great' benefit these bunker upgrades will provide for the Club and a huge thankyou to those volunteers who have spent many hours on this project............

Air2G2 Machine aids in renovation of Greens!

A new golfing Greens air renovator, similar to the one pictured below, has been in action at the Club.

Injecting a blast of high pressure air into the soil up to 300mm below the Green's surface to break up soil compaction has visited the Club.

Dispite some inital localised problems, all Greens were visited.  The breakup of the compacted layers will assist in the absorbion of water, fertilisers and encourage grass growth to all Greens.
