Mens Handicap Division Changes – Due to the ever improving standard of golfer playing in competitions it has become necessary to alter the handicap divisions to make the competitions more equal and fairer. The changes should help to make a more even spread of golfers across all 3 divisions. Please see below for the new divisional limits.
Course Maintenance Week - Date Change – Unfortunately due to the recent wet weather the greens are not able to cope with the level of work we had planned and therefore more harm would be done than good. For this reason the maintenance on the greens has been cancelled for next week and instead put in the diary to commence on Tuesday 7th April. The work that is due to be carried out will remain the same but by doing it a bit later on in the year, we would hope that the weather is more favourable and therefore the recovery of the greens after the work will be quicker. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Course Maintenance Update - February 2015 – As you are probably now aware, our new Head Greenkeeper Elliott is due to start his new role in 2 weeks time. Last week he visited the course and carried out an assessment so that he could start to put some plans in place for the season. Below is a letter from him which explains his short term intentions and some work that is due to be carried out over the next month. We are planning to hollow core the greens on the week commencing Monday 2nd March which is a fairly intensive process but is absolutely necessary in helping to provide a great playing surface for the summer months. This means that at the start of this week there will be some disruption on the course as they move around green by green carrying out the work. There is information included in the letter which goes into more detail but if you have any more questions then please feel free to contact me. Best Regards, Gavin
