3rd and 4th Holes Drainage Works

Another week, another drainage area is being worked on at EGC. This week the Greenstaff have been working on the 3rd and 4th holes. For the last 25 years (and more) we have been looking at water in this area. It starts from the left hand greenside bunker on the 3rd, through to the approach and on to the 4th fairway. Not anymore! As you can see from the slideshow below work has been pretty intense this week. So far the 3rd approach has been drained, connecting in to the 4th fairway and on to the river. Next week we will connect the two greenside bunkers on the 3rd in to the system and then go on up the 4th fairway. It is quite big and intense work and will all be completed in house (with the help of our drainage expert, Christian Brown). Well done to all the guys in tough conditions and hopefully we have a heavy frost next week to help with our trenching!
