Golfers see clearly now as trees removed from course


Excellent progress is being made on the tree removal on the front nine holes at the Titoki golf course. The more open skyline is noticeable from the roadway and looking down from the golf clubhouse. The next step in the project will be the planting of native tress to replace the exotic gums and pines. Once the front nine area has been completed contractor Treescape move on to the Titoki back nine holes then the Williamson nine-hole course. Felled trees are being sold commercially to help fund this major project. The front nine holes are closed and is a no-go zone for health and safety reasons. Alongside the tree project, the refurbishment of the Titoki clubrooms is also under way. Club member Leigh Goodman is managing this project. Many skilled club members are helping with this project and “keeping it local.” Special thanks to local company Palette decor and design for their assistance and Bruce Scott (building) and Andrew Priestley (landscaping) for their wisdom and creativity. Treescape contractors use the latest technology in tree processing including their remote control vegetation eating machine, which can munch through tree trunks and branches with ease. Whangamata golfers will have a reduced number of excuses for their poor round of golf. The chat around the clubrooms hopefully won’t include “I hit a perfect shot and this tree jumped out in front.”
