The final part of the drainage project has been completed. This saw a series of new pipes being laid, a small holding tank put in place and a pump installed, all leading that annoying water some 300 metres away to the burn, adjacent the the 13th green.
The change has been spectacular ...no more heavy puddles, no more wet feet, no more preferred lies and no more constant reparatory work for Brian Findlayson and his green-staff.
Not only has the system moved all the residual water that has lain there, underground for what seems an eternity, but only deals with all levels of rainfall almost immediately. In fact, anyone playing 13 or 14 will have surely witnessed the torrent of water coming from the piping.
Certainly a job well done, especially with the reconstruction of the 18th hole completed.
