Other drainage jobs were done at Wimbledon Park Golf Club, Pycombe Golf Club in West Sussex and Piltdown Golf Club in East Sussex.

Cotgrave Place Golf Club near Nottingham, meanwhile, contacted Speedcut to install a comprehensive drainage system to the 7th hole on the Masters Course.

Course manager Peter Billings said: "The work means we can keep both the Masters and the Open Courses open during extreme wet weather."

Speedcut contracts manager Kevin Smith said: "It has been a hectic year and we have battled against weather to meet deadlines."
