    An assistance request for you Boardsies

    Q. What investment has your golf club made in your course, facilities, clubhouse this year? I know some plans have been put on hold but there's plenty of work still going on.

    - Are there new holes, greens, bunkers, tree clearing, routing?
    - Has there been a clubhouse revamp, new range, buggy fleet, website?

    This is for an IrishGolferMag article I'm writing. Many thanks

    Trackman Studio fitted in Newlands during lockdown. Received well by members and boost for the pro shop.

    This is incorrect information

    Is that not replacing 3 holes due to boundary issues? Sorry for asking because I’ve a friend that’s a member and he was complaining that it will make the course even shorter.

    The course will be longer. It will be a par 73 instead of the present 71. There are also plans to lengthen the current par
    5 5th by moving the green further back on to the current 6th fairway which is one of the holes that is being replaced.

    Loads going on in Glasson.

    Back 6 redesign, moving from a par 73 to 71. 4 new holes look great, new green on the 15th( will be the new 17th).

    Planning application in for a new clubhouse, gym, spa, wedding barn, cabins and hotel improvement.

    New buggies arrived late last year.

    Castlebar has seen the completion of the new course. 2 year project by Jeff Howes & DAR Golf. New holes have fitted in seamlessly and look like they've been there forever. Much better flow to the course and haven't met a member who hasn't been happy with it.

    A recent trip to a local club made me appreciate just how good the drainage is as well, still bone dry bar the odd bad spot.

    2 old holes that are no longer in are being maintained as practice areas.

    I heard that Delgany opened a new short game practice area with new tee boxes at the first.
