Drainage traenching machine working on the 5th hole

The drainage work is well underway on the 5th hole. Above you can see a very impressive machine which has three functions working in unison:

1.  First it cuts a deep trench

2.  Second it lays the drainage pipe

3.  Third it covers the pipe with sand and shingle

The result is a perfectly formed trench with pipe laid and covered all in one synchronised motion.

Once this is complete the shingle will be covered with a special rooting complex to enable grass to grow well and the then seed will be applied.

The contractor and our greens staff are woking hard to deliver the project on schedule. Let's hope the weather stays dry so they can continue uninterrupted.
