The investment at Ombersley Golf Club continues. Hopefully starting next week, you will see the ground works begin for the greenkeepers shed extension. This is another substantial piece of investment to house the ever increasing fleet of machinery which has grown massively this year.
The grass area at the top of the car park next to the current shed will be filled up with the extension. Fingers crossed by the end of November the shed will be up. The current greenkeepers yard will also be increased in size to enable access into the new part of the shed. The office / staff room/ storeroom will also be refurbished. There will be some new pieces of equipment in the shed to enable machinery maintenance to be carried out more efficiently. We can keep you updated with photos as the work evolves over the next few weeks.
It has taken some planning this year, but we are about to confirm a solar panel installation. The panels will cover the driving range roof and greenkeeping shed roof. We will be able to generate about half of our annual electricity consumption from this scheme, while also reducing our carbon footprint considerably. The installation of this will be at the start of 2024. Watch this space.
