16th Green Update:

Progress is excellent with the contractor recently working 6.00am to 9.00pm on the project!

  • The initial stripping of soil, sand and gravel is complete, then the reshaping takes place.
  • The bunker to the right of the green will be cleaned out and reconstructed.
  • The old sand bunker/grass bunker short and right of the green will also be filled in with excess material and re-grassed.

The Course Committee is delighted with progress and expects to have the green back in play for the 2018 season, commencing in April next.
