Although the weather is treating us to a little more sunshine before the summer's out, the members of Enfield Golf Club will be pleased that Turfdry have completed work on phase 1 of their flood mitigation scheme, which has been carried out in conjunction with the Environment Agency and Enfield Borough Council. Both fairway and greens drainage has been installed on the high-risk area of the course, and Turfdry have subsequently re-visited the site to top up any drain lines that have shrunk as a natural consequence of the clayey soil, leaving golfers to enjoy the course in the coming months.
Whilst phase 1 of the Enfield Golf Course flood mitigation scheme is complete however, this has not heralded respite for the Turfdry team, who in addition to their numerous other projects nationwide, are already involved in intense discussions regarding the ambitious 'phase 2' of the plan, which will see the construction of several large ponds and water storage areas integrated throughout the course. This will help massively reduce the size and frequency of flood events that disrupt play, whilst simultaneously capitalising on the opportunity to add further features to an already picturesque course.
