  1. Confirming that the greens could not be cut on Friday 5 th due to the greens being saturated .Also the ground is far to wet to allow buggies on the course Saturday 6th.The rain is forcast to stop Friday evening so the course should be playable Saturday although wet under feet.Will golfers please repair pitch marks so they will recover in 2/3 days rather than 12/15 if pitch marks are NOT repaired.Many thanks A Walbyoff 5/4/19 4pm

  2. For the first ‘competition ‘of the season our course looked and played well.Verticutting took place on Tues/wed2nd/3rd .This procedture takes prox one millimetre off the surface of the greens and gives the greens a smoother surface and will give better roll of the golf ball therefore should be slightly faster.As l look out of my window at the lying snow it is doughtful if the greens will be cut on Friday 5 th.Members
    will hopefully understand if machines cannot get on the course.l remined members about the new rules including the new local rule ‘re lost ball/ and out of bounds info sheets in bar.

    Hope members are enjoying the great golfing weather this last few weeks. This time last year we were all indoors by the fire.
    Ground staff have told me they have cut the greens more this winter than ever before. Greens have been cut and verti-cut in readiness for an early spring and new flags have been put out. The season’s fertilizer has been ordered, committee has given the ok for a comprehensive package from our suppliers. We are hopeful of a mild spring BUT still time to have some cold weather.
    The stakes marking the out of bounds on 8 fairway have been moved 20 feet to the right to help golfers who lose balls in the GUR area bottom left of the fairway. The areas where soil has been placed will shortly be covered with turf and l’m grateful to the seniors section with help to pay for this and other areas. All grass tees sides have been strimmed and painting of all yellow/red/white markers is well underway.

  4. Work continues cutting the deep rough with the flail mower Also tee and green surrounds are being trimmed to enhance the look of the course.The greens continue to absorb water well and are good to putt on ,we believe this due to tinning of the greens and also the greens having being sprayed with an agent which allows water to pass through turf 8 times as fast as normal.
