Under challenging and frequently inclement weather conditions the brave men from Souters continued with the drainage project and completed the work on the 3rd and 13th holes of the Barassie Links. A walk down the burn will clearly show everyone the levels of improvement to the condition of the fairways with the piping dispelling water at a constant rate. In fact, several Members have commented on the new-found 'firmness' of the 13th fairway.
The project has now moved to the area round the 18th fairway and practice ground, where the pipes are being laid and digging is well advanced for the installation of the tank and and pump ...and the excavated earth being placed for the building of the new bunkers are the reshaping of the 18th.
While a couple of weeks should see the project completed, a some additional reparatory work will be required to get the course ready for play. Much to the appreciation of everyone, the contractors have managed to keep seven holes within that loop open for play at the weekend.
