Flood Mitigation Scheme at Enfield Golf Club Keeps Winter Greens in Play

Added: 2nd February 2015

Last year, Turfdry installed a comprehgensive remediation scheme as part of the Salmon's Brook Flood Attenuation Scheme (FAS) at Enfield Golf Club, where the Environment Agency had constructed a substantial flood defence structure to protect against residential flooding in the area - at the cost of transforming the golf course into a flood plain. Following another wet winter, the club has expressed its delight in the effectiveness of the Turfdry Drainage System, and now plans to have extensive works undertaken in other parts of the course.

John Codling - pictured to the right identifying a waterlogged area during a recent site visit to investigate the remaining problem areas - said that the drainage undertaken by Turfdry in 2014 had been "a revelation", pointing to the 10th green - the only green drained by Turfdry as part of the FAS - as testament to the system's efficiency: what had traditionally always been the wettest green on the course has remained in play throughout the winter, whilst many others had been forced onto temporary greens.
