The improvement to the Brighton Public Golf Course via a water harvesting project to provide a sustainable water supply for both the BPGC and Dendy Park is now reaching the final stages of design and planning.
We have a new BCC project manager Steve Fernee who is working closely with pro shop manager Travis Harrison to ensure that the project runs in a timely fashion with the least amount of disruption to the playing public as possible.
Clubs and green fee players will be kept advised of project scheduling with notices published in the pro shop and by other means such as regular meetings with pro shop staff and the BCC and BGC News newsletter articles.
I’d like to send a friendly reminder to all BGC members that this project was initiated by us the Brighton Golf Club because it was you the Members that sent the CoM a very clear message that the golf course was not providing an enjoyable golf experience – so your CoM acted, with the result that the project will start in February 2017 and will take some six months or so to complete.
There will of course be interruptions to the flow of play, this is unavoidable. But it’s a short term inconvenience for a long term improvement to playing condition.
As chairman of the Sub-Committee and as a fellow Member I appeal to you all to stay positive and patient as work progresses.
Please click on this Link and have a look at the transcript of the meeting we had with Travis on the 27th October. Hopefully most of your questions pertaining to the project will be answered in that document, if not please feel free to contact me or any other member of the sub-committee for more information.
A map of the new temporary layout is also included in this Link please feel free to print a copy for your future reference. Additionally a larger version with explanatory notes will soon be mounted in the BGC Clubrooms.
