They are keeping 9 of the original 18 holes, I think.

None of the holes are original. They are all new effectively and skirt the outside fences to keep prying eyes away from the training pitch. 5 towards one boundary and then 4 along another.

 

They also had to re route the bridleway as the land had a public right off access through it when it was the golf course that passed right past one of the new Tee Placements. So that has had to be moved to the perimeter as well.

Ah, right. Thanks.

 

I went looking for the original thread, but couldn't find it. Do you know if it was deleted?

Must have creamed a good few million quid in late fees from McLaren? 

100k a week apparently so it's adding up.

The pitches are apparently still a bit rough, which reminds me.. I played on a terrible pitch the other day, there were broken bricks poking up and all sorts.

 

We won 3-2 on aggregate 

no one picked this up..........but get out!

Pretty sure an extension of time application would have been approved due to Covid. Most construction jobs have clauses in the contracts to protect the contractors from liquidated damages in the event of forces beyond their control causing delays.  Personally i would hope that we are being fair with them. When the stadium was initially built there were lots of behind the scenes areas that were unfinished/poor standard due to the contractual falling outs with the contractor. (the club refusing/delaying payments and then Birse the not completing works properly)

Thing is, it isn’t the owners money really, it’s being paid for by a loan which the club will pay back? So they could probably do it.....
