It seems like a long, long time ago since we announced the construction of the new practice putting green at Burstwick and due to a few things outside of our control, it has taken longer than we expected to get to a point where it’s ready to open.
Well, I am proud and happy to see that we are now at that point; the new putting green shall be open for business from this Friday! We have been over the last two months accelerating the maintenance of the green to bring it inline with the rest of the greens on the golf course, and last week was the first time it had been cut at the same height as these.
There will be five holes on the new green, and these will be changed on a much more frequent basis than the original practice green. As golfers begin to use the new facility we would like to remind them that it may take six to eight months to begin performing like the rest of the greens due to it taking time to bed in with constant use and maintenance, but it will perform fairly well from the outset.
