I thought you might like an update on the Irrigation lake.
The best way I could do this was to give you a Bird’s eye
view using a Drone. Its only my second proper flight so please be patient with
my flying skills! Don’t worry I have all the permissions from the relevant
authorities to fly it so hopefully I will not be bringing any airports to a
The Greenstaff have been working incredibly hard and we are really making some progress. Watch the video and you will see it shows the middle of the area and then zooms around the perimeters.
The film starts looking at the perimeter of the proposed lake along the side of the 4th fairway where these trees you see will remain. It then shows the row of trees along the 1st fairway will remain and this will extend round to the 2nd tee. You then see the new water tank and pump house, we have to remove the trees initially. Once digging commences and soil is moved the Water Tank and Pump house will be hidden by Soil mounding and new trees planted.
The video then shows the 3rd hole where we have now removed more trees, this area again will be shaped and mounded with excess soil forming the bank of the Lake.
The aerial view gives you an idea of the size of the Lake,
it will store approximately 35,000 cubic litres of natural water, and at its
deepest is roughly 6 m deep. The Lake, when full, will give us enough of our
own water to use for irrigation to the course throughout most summers.
Finally I have tried to show you further views of the area.
We still have more clearance work to do and then the next stage of construction can start.
Enjoy the Video
I will update you further on this in the next few weeks
Its presently -2 out on the course and a heavy frost means temporary Greens are in use until the frost clears. Buggy’s are only allowed on the front 9 holes and must stick to the paths at all times. Trolleys are on.

Just a quick note to thank you and your colleagues for the most enjoyable day our Society members had at the Abridge Golf and Country Club last Thursday. As the Society secretary I found booking the venue and meal, then making minor changes all very simple and I thank you for making it so. Without exception, we found the course in very good condition and in particular, the fairways which were a pleasure to play on. Please pass on our thanks to those who provided the refreshments and meal in such a friendly manner. The golf and meal were thoroughly enjoyed by all and I have been asked to arrange a further society day at the Abridge Golf and Country Club in 2019. I will therefore be in contact with you early in the New Year. Kind Regards, Brian.

We had a great day thanks and the food was very good. The course was very boggy but nobody seem to mind too much. I think all in all it went very well and everybody was pleased. Understandably you are suffering some disruption while the building work continues but I’m sure it will all be worth it when it’s completed. Thanks for all your help and we appreciate your understanding regarding our late cancellations. We look forward to returning soon.
