The greens replacement project at the Vitoria Golf Club on Melbourne’s Sandbelt is in full swing and the process of rebuilding the greens are well underway.
7 hectares of greens and tees turf has been removed and green contours are being reinstated and fumigated on holes 1,2,3,8,9, 15 and 18. To ensure contours are correctly reinstated the club has undertaken detailed surveys of each green complex and utilised some sophisticated grading equipment to attain a high degree of accuracy.
In addition to the re-instatment of the original greens the works also include some design alterations to 3 of the newer green complexes (5, 12 and 17) where the aim is to create greens and bunkers closer in style to the originals. Tees are also being levelled with a few extra areas created and minor works to some bunkers, paths and indigenous vegetation areas.
In the next few weeks repairs on holes 4, 7, 10, 14 and 16 will follow.
Works are estimated to be complete by Christmas with the full course in play In February 2019.
