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
