We have started the removal programme on the gorse area between the 1st hole on Balgownie and the 4th hole on the Silverburn Course. This is a large area that will be removed over a period of 4-5 years. The plan is to cut an area then allow it to recover before clearing the next plot. This will reduce the negative visual impact there is when we clear the gorse. By the time we reach the 1st tee the area behind will have healed and regeneration will have started.
