It is necessary for Northern Gas to undertake some essential repairs to the gas line that crosses the golf course. Following a meeting with Mick Byerley (Director of Course Services) Contractors will begin to move some of their equipment on site on Thursday July 2nd with digging likely to commence the following week.
The work entails digging 6 holes along the direction of the gas pipe to carry out repairs to it. Each dig will be treated separately and completed before moving on to the next. There is a map in the Professional’s shop that shows the route to be taken and placement of these holes. It is classed as essential repairs and although our preference had been to carry out these repairs much earlier (during lockdown when the course was closed would have been great) but we are required to allow them access.
Every attempt will be made to keep the disruption to a minimum but during the period work is being carried out temporary local rules will need to be put into operation and these will be displayed.
