Work on the 5th green is now complete. All green surrounds have been turfed and the fairway bunker has been completed to finish the project. The greens turf was rolled prior to a winter granule been applied which will encourage rooting and general plant health. The green complex and view from the fairway looks very good. The aim was to maintain the original shapes and approach to the green and this has been achieved with some subtle changes to the surrounds and bunkers. The front left portion of the green has been flattened to give us scope for pin placement in this area that had been lost in the last few years. Martin Hawtree and Sol golf have done a very professional job throughout and have shown that it pays to get the best people available to carry out the changes to Balgownie. The green staff at RAGC have also done a tremendous job with the new bunkers and re-turfing work to the surrounds.
