Latest course developments

After a month in the workshop, basket 11 has been returned to the course.

Eight brand new baskets have been built and are ready for installation. These eight will be replacing the eight remaining original baskets, which have served the course superbly since 1986.
The first of the new baskets was installed at the weekend on hole 9. The new baskets have had a few minor design tweeks making them structurely stronger, kinder to discs and also better looking (in my opinion).
The basket replacement project is expected to be completed in November.

Work has also begun on levelling some of the uneven tees. Hole 18 was the first to receive attention. Both tees have been levelled and are now waiting for gravel to finish them off and look pretty.

Finally, the land around the old mowing shed has been levelled to make this an ideal tournament HQ location. Long benches have also been added. There’s great views over the river and the mountain and also over the green of hole 9.
