The much improved view from the tee.
The hole now looks much more appealing with the hazards and fairway all now in full view. Where the gorse has been removed the areas have either been re-turfed or will be seeded with a rough grass mix next spring.
The view from the 9th winter tee was similar to that of the 18th with little if any of the fairway visible. Having completed the work at the 18th with the tractor and back hoe successfully this was the next area to be tackled.

Other areas of gorse that are impacting on the playability of the courses will be addressed over the coming months.
