As the greens staff worked to keep the course in fantastic condition over the past two months or so we have been pleased to share it with our neighbours and public during closure. There have been great numbers of walkers plus we have seen picnics taking place, kids having fun in bunkers and families playing Pooh sticks from the bridges at the 4th green.
It has been tough for so many people and it was great that our course gave enjoyment to so many in these tough and trying times and even better that it was so well respected by all when a number of other clubs had problems with course and clubhouse vandalism and other difficult issues to deal with during these months.
However, all that has now come to an end as Friday saw the course reopen with the first tee time at 7am. Iain was there to welcome the first members and see them off where conditions were perfect for golf with blue skies and the course looking very inviting.
The Captain and Council hope everyone who played had a great day and thanks go out to Iain for having all running so well and especially to our members for keeping to the rules.
Please remember going forward to continue to abide by all the rules now in place as this will ensure everyone’s safety.
The following are some photos from the day taken by our very own Council (unofficial) photographer Joe Douglas so thanks to Joe for these.
