Work On The Green Last Day

Saturday saw the last day of work on the green what was supposed to be 4 hours turned out to be almost 9. As the last of the holes were drilled the drill hit something very hard and it was a struggle to get the drill out of the ground. Being almost 30ft down made things worse, but the boys done well getting out after one hour. The last hole being set up for drilling saw the same thing happen but this time it was only about 20 ft down , was a bit easier to get the drill out . then the clear up started The slow process of getting the drill of the green started. (see  Pictures ). The end of a long day.
