Following the dramatic upturn in major weather events experienced nationwide in recent years, the Environment Agency is constructing a barrier to protect homes in the local area from flooding. Whilst this is no doubt excellent news for local residents, those with a golf membership have reason to be concerned: parts of the golf course have been designated as flood plains as part of the scheme!
Liaising closely with the Environment Agency, the local Council, and of course the Golf Club, Turfdry have designed a comprehensive remediation scheme. The initial work will see a high-specification Turfdry Drainage System using Hydraway Sportsdrain installed, to return the course to play as quickly as possible following storm events that result in the fairways being submerged. A second phase is being discussed, which will see the construction of several ponds and in-course water storage areas that will help to reduce the frequency of the flooding events.
