The course works have been delayed due to some heavy rainfall which temporarily forced the big machinery to lie idle for a few days. No complaints from the ducks however as they enjoyed the new pond that formed around the site of the new 9th green for a few days until the pumps dried it all up.
Once back in action the contractors have been working all day on the excavators and dozers in an effort to catch up. Their main focus has been around the sites of 1st & 10th tees as well as the 9th and 18th greens. The 1st tee currently resembles a miniature Uluru, but that will come crashing down as they start shaping up the new tee and practice putting green. The 9th and 18th greens have been excavated and partial shaped, but there’s still a lot to be done around those areas.
Soon the 1st and 10th greens have received their final profile layer of sand which clearly defines the shape of both greens. You can look forward to seeing some turf laid around the surrounds of both greens in the near future before they are both seeded.
