Christmas & New Year Opening Hours

Following Council discussions regarding opening times over the festive period, they have agreed, that due to the Clubhouse facilities not being utilised well enough on the following days over the last couple of years, the Clubhouse will be closed on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. This adds to the already agreed arrangements, whereby the Clubhouse is closed on Christmas Day.

The Course will be open for play on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day however, members are reminded that they will require to remove any equipment required for this purpose prior to these days as no access to the clubhouse will be possible.

Opening and closing times for all other days are as per the Winter Schedule already posted on the noticeboards.

The Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause members but the loss of finance over these days is unsustainable for the club at present.

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.
