Another productive month with works progressing on all fronts across the site. The main focus in the period was the construction of the new 18th tee and the first green, with all irrigation pipe work installed, bunkers shaped and base layer of topsoil placed. The approach area to the first green was also created which included a number of features namely, the cutting of a new ditch, which was formed with a castellated sleeper bank detail and a number of sleeper bridge crossings. In the general Golf course area the shaping of Tees and Greens progressed and the drainage installation continued to be installed site wide.
In area 2 the construction and installation of a new precast abstraction chamber was constructed adjacent to the existing Golf clubhouse, with associated ancillary ducting installed from the existing pump house building to the new proposed road crossing.
Future works in the coming month will include the installation of a road crossing of the A82 for the water distribution pipework, installation of the fitness trail, and the clay lining to the water bodies.
Update March 7th 2017
Works have progressed well in the month despite some challenging weather conditions, with the shaping of the fairways, greens and tees continuing in the period when the weather has allowed. The progress to date has now reached 10 greens shaped, including 8 of the greens with the drainage installed, 50% of the tees now formed, with 30% of the tee drainage also installed, and the fairway drainage installation continuing to progress in many areas. The construction of the some of the golf course features commenced in the period with the rebuilding of sections of the existing stone walling, and the forming of the swales between waterbodies and around the greens.
As well as the construction of the course in the new construction area 3, the contractor has taken over a section of the live existing golf course (areas 5 and part of 6) from the Golf Club, to remove trees, shrubbery and to construct the new 1st Green and 18th Tees. This work progressed well in the period, with the tree clearance section (Area 6) completed and handed back to the golf club by the period end.
Works due to commence in the coming month are the start of the abstraction pumping chamber works, the installation of the waterbody liners (weather dependent), the continuation of the tees, greens and fairways and the completion and handover of the new 1st Green and 18th Tees.
