It has been another busy week at Drax as we continue with our winter maintenance programme. We have removed a bridge, carried out essential drainage on the 2nd hole and also removed 4 trees... and it is only Wednesday!

Towards the end of February, the Greens and Competitions Committees advised of a temporary local rule whereby the greenkeepers would not actively rake bunkers daily. It would then be the responsibility of players to rake the bunker after they have taken their shots.
