Major renovation work is now underway to create USGA spec greens, raised and level tee areas, sand & grass bunkers, a full irrigation system and some fairway remodeling where needed.
The facility will receive a significant financial injection over the next 4 to 5 years to help GGGC become one of the finest ‘Pay & Play’ golf courses in the South of England! Please see a sample of the improvement work to be carried out.
The back nine is complete and maturing well. This Winter all the bunkers will be lined ready for filling with sand in the Spring.
We will be running a major aeration programme throughout the Winter on all fairways, tees, greens, approaches and surrounds which will alleviate any compacted areas which will result in better grass growth and thickening next Spring/Summer.
Paths will be edged and barked. Yardage marker posts will be introduced.
On the front nine all greens and surrounds are growing well and most tee complexes are finished, seeded and growing.
All the fairways have been prepared for stone crushing, finishing and seeding in the Spring.
We aim to open the front nine to members early Summer 2018 (weather permitting). We anticipate both the front and back nine should be at a similar condition at that time.
The new Putting area is seeded and growing well.
Sand will be added to the bunkers on the Driving Range next Spring.
White Course - 9 Holes
Renovations have begun on the White Course.
We are creating an Academy Course with short Par 3 & 4's.
It should be complete and operating fully by 2019.
