Irrigation and Drainage Project Update

Posted on: 6 February

We are thrilled to announce the finalised plan and schedule for our upcoming irrigation and drainage projects, marking a significant stride in enhancing our course’s performance and sustainability.

Irrigation Project: Commencing on February 19, 2024, the irrigation project will kick off on holes 9 and 18, followed by a seamless progression to holes 12, 15, 16, and 17. This pivotal undertaking is slated to span approximately 16 weeks, promising substantial improvements in our irrigation infrastructure.

Drainage Project: In June 2024, our focus will shift to the drainage project, initially targeting holes 9 and 18 before extending to holes 12 and 15. Anticipated to last around 4 weeks, this phase aims to bolster course drainage, ensuring operational continuity and cart access even during inclement weather.
