The new green at 17th continues to root well and remains on course for re-introduction at the Spring Meeting in late April.

The new bunkers and surrounds at the 9th and 13th continue to improve and settle in well.  These bunkers have received their first blinding layer in preparation for their new bunker sand.  We are introducing a new blended sand from two different quarries which has been extensively trialled and is now being rolled out to all bunkers at Gleneagles Golf Club on all 3 main courses.  We will be asking members for feedback towards the end of 2017 calendar to assess it’s continued and future use.

The 13th green has also received it’s first top-dressing in preparation for its re-introduction.
