We've added the Marram grass to give the area more of a links look and feel.
We’ve had a busy last few weeks on the Old Course with autumn renovation works taking place. We have been overseeding many areas including greens, tees, fairways and semi-roughs to strengthen the swards of grass.
The other main task over the last week or so has been the planting of Marram grass on the 7th hole. This is the area where we removed gorse last year and reseeded the area with new grass. Now we’ve added the Marram grass to give the area more of a links look and feel.
Next week sees the winter mats come into operation on fairways for and fairway plugging will commence on Sunday.
Elsewhere on the Links, we’ve been bunker building on the New Course. Here’s the 16th looking pristine after a fresh rebuild.
