Turfing the par 5 tees

Earlier in the the year, we reported on the construction of the four new tees on the par 5; 3rd/13th hole. Today was the day that the turf arrived to be used to finish them off, covering some 500m2 of area!

A call was made last week for volunteers to assist in the labouring to enable the tees to be covered. The skilled work of turf laying was mostly done by greenkeepers Alex, Seb and Harvey, with some assistance from Tony Morgan and Roger Walker. The donkey work of fetching and carrying the turf by the other eager Members.

A big thank you goes to all who assisted this morning, especially in these troubled times. Fresh air and exercise was just the ticket to take your mind off what’s happening in the world, even if it was just for a few hours.

Let’s get some warm rain and sunshine to have the tees looking great for the new season.
