Dear Members,

Having a week of mixed weather has really helped Andy and the Green keepers to make good strides into the course condition.  The Greens are coming back nicely although, more work is required on a few namely 8, 10 and 17.  The bunkers have had a new raking regime, taking the sand where possible off the slopes allowing the ball to roll down for a better lie, which has been received very well by those I’ve spoken to.

After the Pro-Am on Wednesday the course feedback was considerably better than previously received and the food was excellent from Alex and his team.

This time last year we had to put special measures on the course due to the Crow and Rook damage, this year we have noticed small areas of damage but we are confident that the efforts of previously spraying the course aligned with the additional measures of Falcon flying (3 times per week at the moment), falcon kites, scarecrow and noise cannon have combined to make this an inhospitable place for the birds to feed.  Whilst we cannot legally eradicate the birds we are more than happy for them to feast elsewhere.

The roof is currently being fixed above the men’s changing rooms as per the picture and will ensure that only those in the shower get wet this winter!  I am currently receiving quotes and look forward to start work on ensuring the Driving range gets similar treatment shortly.

The Red tees are no more and have been replaced with Green and the new short course has Orange markers, please pick up a new scorecard from the Pro-Shop and try out these new courses for everyone to enjoy.

Have a great week and Happy Golfing

Roger & Team
