The project is designed to achieve 3 interlinked strategic objectives: 1. To improve the playability of the golf course by dredging existing ponds that are totally overgrown, and renewing important drainage outfalls ….2. The beneficial results of the first objective will promote bio-diversity by encouraging a more diverse variety of bird and insect species to inhabit the improved ponds…this in turn will make use of the public footpath a more interesting experience to local residents….3. To engender greater inclusivity and participation, the development of new teeing areas on all 18-holes especially for children and other newcomers to golf (effectively a 'course within the course'). This measure will also be supplemented by providing golf equipment that juniors can use 'free of charge' when taking lessons, practicing or playing the new 'junior course', and by upgrading the golf practice area to more of an 'Academy' to enhance the facilities available to learners, especially juniors.

What we'll deliver:

  • Dredging of ponds alongside 1st fairway + associated works
  • Renewal of fairway drainage outfalls
  • Landscape / woodland management alongside public footpath
  • Construction of 18 new teeing areas (artificial turf)
  • Construction of 6 teeing areas (artificial turf) on the existing practice area
  • Construction of portable canopy over two of the new practice areas tees
  • Junior golf equipment

Why it's a great idea:

The project contents will bring the following benefits: A better golf experience for all golfers A new golf experience for children (with equipment provided for use) and complete beginners Upgraded golf learning facilities Enhanced landscape bio-diversity A more desirable footpath experience for local residents

Steps to get it done:

  • Contracting of excavator, driver & dumpers
  • Purchase of all required drainage materials
  • Dredging & drainage works
  • Purchase of artificial grass mats & other equipment
  • Construction of teeing areas (golf course & practice area)
