Bunker Refurbishment Work

The refurbishment that was being carried out on some of the bunkers over the past couple of months has finished and the bunkers, which were G.U.R. for the duration of the project were brought back into general play this week. I think everyone will agree that the green keeping staff did a fantastic job on reshaping and the bunkers look top class. Well done to Jason, Declan and the lads on a job well done.
