Trees are a pivotal part of life, and without them it is safe to say our world would be very different. Not only do they support our ecosystem, but trees also play a very important role in the world of golf.
The trees on our course help to protect it in a variety of ways, such as protecting and enhancing the water quality & quantity, slowly recharging ground water while preventing excessive water erosion and run off as their leaves and branches intercept rain. (Yard Whispers/ATTS Group)
Unfortunately, the storms & bad weather we experienced on the Wirral last year meant that a number of trees around the course were knocked down or damaged. Many of our trees hold years of history within them, with some being almost as old as the course itself, and we understand how the trees and greenery around our course has shaped it over the years and helped make it into the club we all know and love.
In order to preserve our course and its natural beauty, ecosystem and habitat, we are replanting some of these trees between the 1st and 3rd fairways and the 13th and 14th fairways. Rejuvenating these areas of the course has an added benefit of providing separation between the holes – creating a sleeker and safer experience for those playing on both fairways.
We’re looking forward to seeing these changes develop and grow and we hope that these new trees will thrive at our course.
