The reconstruction of the 18th hole on the Barassie Links course is all but complete. The new layout saw the building of five new bunkers complimented by a series of rolling mounds. The hole now takes on an improved style and a different challenge. With a tighter landing area and a threatening pot bunker the 'big hitter' just might have to rethink their strategy, while the shorter hitters still require an accurate approach to prevent a closing disaster creeping up on them.
The new turf is knitting very well and the imported bushes rooting successfully. The updating of the layout for 'Stroke-Savers' and other aids has been completed. And with the issue of the drainage resolved, Kilmarnock Barassie Links course now has a finishing hole to be proud of.
