our latest project

To increase water storage on the golf course whilst increasing the already picturesque beauty of the golf course.

After consultation between Richard, the team, Jack ( owner/manager ) and Roy ( head greenkeeper ) a new large lake was to be excavated and then combined with a smaller existing lake and a smaller existing pond to create a much larger lake.

The first phase was to cut down trees, excavate the roots and clear vegetation from the new area as well as from around the existing lake and pond.

A new pathway was created for golfers and golf buggies.

Excavation of the new lake could now commence. Using the excavated clay and topsoil a bank was created.

The bottom of the lake was then levelled and the banks were graded. A safety shelf was also created.

The water was then pumped from the existing lake into the new lake.

The next phase was to build a bund to contain the tons of silt which was dredged from the existing lake using a 22.5 ton/ 15 metre long reach excavator on the bank and a standard excavator in the bottom of the lake.

Two 9 ton dumpers were loaded constantly to tip the silt into the bund. After many days and man hours of dredging the lake was cleared of silt. The bank between the original lake and the new lake was then excavated to unite the lakes and allow the water to form one larger lake.

The small pond was then drained and dredged and when cleared the bank was then excavated uniting it with the two lakes to form the large finished lake size.

A bunker was infilled, the area top soiled and grass seed sown.

The machinery was cleared from the area and the finishing touches were carried out to leave the golf course in a perfect condition for top soiling and grass seed.

Owners Jack & Maddison were very happy with the standards and professionalism of the project.

Several golfers also commented on the high quality of our work.
