    • First class course maintenance the key

    • You will have seen that the greens staff have been busy with the seasonal pruning and removal of appropriate trees, both of which are essential to tree management.

      When we built the course in 1990 we planted many small trees at a high density to create some shape to the course as well as visual impact.

    • As with all woodland, the tree planting took place with an understanding that a continual thinning process would need to take place in order to remove weaker trees and to give the space for the best specimens to thrive.

      Without this process we would see both poor tree development and an increasingly difficult golf course which would cease to provide a “fair challenge” to our varied audience and customer base.”
