Longniddry Golf Club, East Lothian

Monday 15th August 2011

Following the presentation of a detailed evolution document for the structured development of the course, work is underway to implement the first set of changes over this winter.

In line with Kimber Golf's proposal to improve the strategy and aesthetic appeal of the par 3 holes in the first phase of the project, work has commenced to transform the 6th green complex, renovating the tired bunkers into a series of well placed, gathering pot bunkers. In addition to this work, sea buckthorn that has encroached onto the golf course over a number of years is to be removed in some locations to allow other proposed improvements to follow.

Cutting and bailing of the thick rough will take place over the winter period and once this work is completed Kimber Golf will return to the club to mark out some new fairway and semi-rough limits. This will be the first step in improving the strategic design of some holes and following this, the re-positioning of fairway bunkers will re-introduce exciting risk / reward opportunities back into the layout.
