The Drainage Works!

Its been another tough week at EGC. Over 25mm (1 inch for you old timers:) has left many parts of the course sodden, but not the 3rd and 4th holes! If you look below you will see the 4th fairway with a picture taken yesterday morning when it was pouring down. The next one was taken this morning showing it completely dry. A great effort by the guys who have worked tirelessly for the last 4 weeks installing new primary drainage in this area.

This week (again) it has been about moving water away from the course. Our efforts concentrated on shifting water from the high side of the course (left of the 1st green), down to the ditch by the 13th and then finally in to the river. The video below shows you the outlet, with water gushing out:)


All that's left for us to say is we hope that our members and guests have a Merry Christmas and lets hope Santa brings us some dry weather!
