New Bunkers

I am sure you will agree that our Greens Staff have all put in a tremendous amount of work over the past weeks in producing our re-designed bunkers at the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 16th and 17th holes.

Thanks and congratulations must go to all involved in the design and construction of these bunkers which have improved not only the appearance of each hole but no doubt the difficulty.

In order to ensure that these bunkers are ready for our 2019 playing season in April it is necessary to protect these bunkers and their surrounding areas that have received new turf.

In order to achieve this the bunkers and surrounding new turf areas are, effective immediately, Ground Under Repair (Abnormal Course Conditions) and relief MUST be taken. This is relief with no penalty.

Should your ball be in any of the new bunkers you MUST use the rubber access mats provided to retrieve your ball and if your ball is within any area that has received new turf please carefully retrieve your ball.

Fairway Saver Mats

Effective Monday 3rd December until further notice Fairway Saver Mats MUST be used when playing from the fairway.

Balls may be moved to the nearest semi-rough (not nearer the hole) and played without the use of a mat.

When playing from the any area of the course, other than a fairway or a bunker, Preferred Lies are in play.

The Craft Fair

The Craft Fair was a lovely and successful event. It was great to see the clubhouse with so many people in it… in the bar, the dining room, the television room and the function hall. Everyone enjoyed good food, good company and were able to purchase lots of beautiful craft items.

Many thanks to the stallholders for making their stalls look so beautiful. I hope it was a worthwhile evening for all of you. Special thanks for your very kind donations of prizes for the raffle.

Also, huge thanks to Johan, Alan Richardson, David Doig, the Catering team and the bar staff for their amazing help in ensuring the success of the evening.
