RGC  captain, Scott Williams and president, Anthony Lakey, took on the job of running a drain, basically east/west across the 6th green.  The northern end of the 6th has been subject to  casual water for a number of years and it was time to sort this problem out.

1st  – Mark the line and  take out the turf.

2nd – dig down and clear the trench to around 350mm

3rd – drop in about 30mm of 25mm screenings

4th – put in the agi-pipe (with stocking) and connect to the 90mm storm water pipe that runs into the Nth/Sth drain along the eastern boundary of Romsey Park.

5th – add sand over the Ag pipe.

6th – replace the turf

7th – top-dress and level

8th – roll it all in

9th – top dress again then roll and , after some steady work, there you are.  Freebie and Bruce, fresh from cutting the fairways and rough, putted a few balls and, … all was good.

Romsey Golf Club (RGC) golf course has been at Romsey Park since 1922. We care for and improve the ~80% of Romsey Park that makes up the Golf Course. Currently we have twelve greens and 18 tees. The course ratings are; Blue Tees; Men - Par 72, ACR 72, Slope 124. Women - Par 76, ACR 77, Slope 129. Red Tees; Men - Par 70, ACR 68, Slope 114. Women - Par 71, ACR 73, Slope 119. Indigenous, native trees and bushes are planted to make the park/course more attractive to golfers, community members and native insects, birds, reptiles and small mammals, to provide shade and wind control and for carbon abatement. RGC is a totally volunteer run club. We hold mixed competitions on Wednesdays (9.00 am for 9.30 am hit-off) and on Saturdays (11.30 am for 12.00 pm hit-off). Competition fees are $10.00. Twilight golf runs every Friday (~4.00 pm on) between November and March; $5.00 for golf.
