June 2021 Course Works Update
As you are aware, we have ongoing golf course improvement works taking place at Sherdley Park Golf Club where we are reconstructing holes 14,15,16,17 and working on 18 too.
The works are progressing well, however due to various unforeseen circumstances the works are delayed and behind programme. We wrote to our members on Friday, 14th May 2021 to announce the target of reopening on Saturday, 3rd July 2021. We hired a hydroseed contractor and increased the work force to push to the finish line and deliver 4 fantastic new holes and a new 18th tee, but unfortunately, we did not anticipate the extreme drought conditions that have hit the project ever since.
The high temperatures and extremely dry conditions have now delayed completion of this project further. This delay now pushes us into the end of summer period which will in turn create greater challenges in establishing new fine turf surfaces.
We will have completed the works in September however we have decided not to open the new holes before the winter period as this will not be in the best interest of our members and will jeopardise the final finish and long-term condition of the works. Therefore, the full 18-hole golf course, including the 4 brand new holes and new 18th tee will now reopen on Saturday, 5th March 2022 in tip top condition and to the very high standard we set out to deliver when we first started this project.
