Work is proceeding very fast along side the 6th green and fairway.
Work on the new ‘sandbag’ defence buried deep under the dunes at the narrowest point of the Warren (the Neck) will be ongoing throughout the summer. Giant bags are being pumped full of sand and water which drain to create compacted sand bags up to 2.85m high. When finished, the bags will be buried in the back face of the dune and the dune revegatated. This structure is designed to reduce flood risk behind from the most severe of storms and prevent the Warren breaching along this vulnerable section.
