Friday 15th September 2023



Please note that the course will be closed all day on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th September. No play is permitted. TK and the team will be coring, sanding and seeding the greens. It was hoped that we could keep 9 holes open but as the weather is against us, the decision is to close the course for 2 days while the coring and maintenance of the greens is carried out. We have a very short window in which to carry out this much needed work on the greens. We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.  


Weekly Update from TK and Green Staff:

It’s that time of the year (renovations). Everything has been tested and is on site ready to go. Our sand was delivered this morning and the boys are eager to get it out. We have tested all the irrigation so the greens won’t dry out so bring on Monday morning. Pray the weather doesn’t change. Thanks for your patience while the course is closed next Monday and Tuesday – we do appreciate it!.

9-hole Midweek Ladies Report:

Marge Alcock came a comfortable first, followed by Marion Thompson and third equal were Jane Campbell, Hilary Newby and Trish Titcombe. Some of the players were pleased to report there was a little more run than normal.  Thank you to the busy greenkeepers.

Also we would like to wish all the members that are in poor health or injured, a very speedy recovery.
