VERTIGO -VERTI-GO O121 3553700 UNIQUE VERTICAL DRAINAGE SYSTEM AT ROYAL PORTHCAWL GOLF CLUB ON FAIRWAY.
"We had the Verti-Go drainage system installed on a new section of fairway in late April 2010, this area regularly flooded and was unplayable after heavy rain. In fact, it was roped off and protected for long periods during this last winter dut to the presence of surface water.The guys from Verti-go introduced some test shafts and found that beneath the rootzone material we had a couple of metres of clay over fissured rock. When we poured 40 litres of water down one of these test holes it disappeared from sight as fast as you could fill it up.
They worked on the area for three days boring shafts at 1 metre spacings to the varying depth of the rock and backfilling the holes with gravel, the process created no disturbance or mess and they acted professionally throughout. The section of fairway in question now drains as well as any on the course and even following a real deluge does not support any standing water. The members are delighted with the transformation and no longer try to avoid this area when playing the hole.
I would thoroughly recommend the Verti-Go system."
