Tree removal

This afternoon, myself and the greens committee walked the course to determine which trees would be removed as part of our winter work programme. It was a very productive time, with  agreement on all areas under discussion.
The main aims of the tree removal are to provide light, improve areas for drainage, reduce leaf litter, remove undesirable species and to re-instate views across the course and across the bay that have been lost.
The areas of removal this winter will be the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, 12th & 16th holes.
As always, the work will be weather dependant and will also include the removal of any stumps which would be seen as in play.
The work should start early next month (November) and will continue thru the winter. 
I will update the blog with more information and pictures as work progresses.

  1. Good news. It's great to hear the interaction with the committee is going well, long may it continue as the results so far are definitely very promising..

    It's looking like it's going to be a very busy period on the course, which will be a benefit to all of the members in the long run.

    Let's pray for some decent weather..

    When's the wood available??:-):-)

    1. Thanks for your comments. It will take a while for the wood to be seasoned, but as soon as its ready, we plan to sell to the members to fund more tree removal.
