As part of ongoing course improvement works and in line with recommendations from the STRI (Sports Turf Research Industry), we removed two trees on the first fairway to improve the view from tee to green. Along with these works will be the removal of the stunted birch trees surrounding the first tee which will open up the area and make it lighter and more welcoming. General tree maintenance has also taken place around the course to remove dead and dying trees.
As players will be aware, from time to time tree works have to take place and not always removal or felling - last year we reduced the weight and shaped round the veteran oak trees on the 8th fairway.
