This months essential planned course maintenance will commence at 5am on Monday 20th August and continue through to Thursday 23rd.
Pencil tinning over the first two days will be followed by over seeding and top dressing on Wednesday with the greens being ironed and granular fed on Thursday to complete the work.
Disruption will be kept to a minimum, however, you will appreciate that the above work is essential in order to maintain the very high standard we now all enjoy. Please note that the above timescales are very much weather dependant.
