Praise for Nairn’s Curtis cup preparations

Editorin Golf

Following a team trial weekend for this year's Curtis Cup, the GB & Ireland team has praised the host venue for its preparations ahead of the international match.

With less than 70 days before the 37th staging of the Curtis Cup, the final stages of a three-year improvement programme were in place for the three-day trial at The Nairn Golf Club.

The team trial was the first opportunity for many players to experience the links after the completion of the course improvements.

"It was a wonderful weekend with all the players showing off their formidable skills," said Andy Burgess, the club's marketing convenor.

"We started preparing for the Curtis Cup over three years ago. Since then a lot of work has been done on the course including the revetting of 60% of the bunkers. This was the first time a lot of the players had seen the course with these improvements, and without exception the feedback has been very positive."

The weekend proved to be the perfect testing-ground for both golfers and the eight-man greenkeeping team at the famous host venue.
