  Irrigation Update 

This winter we will also be completing Phase One of the planned irrigation project.  Phase One includes all works within the boundaries of the Clubhouse and in particular the following: -

Refurbishment of existing borehole.
Installing new borehole.
Providing pump for course irrigation.
Associated pipework and electrical work.
Some of these works have been completed and it is anticipated that the cost of the works is grant funded and supplemented by fund raising activities largely completed.
Phase Two of the project is to provide the irrigation network to the greens outside of the boundary of the Clubhouse.  This will be a more long-term project and various grants will be applied for to achieve this work.

Created by intelligentgolf version 10.1.2.
