Greens renovation

The greens are still holding up well, though renovation work is around the corner. Please keep checking as I will be updating when renovation work will commence, we are hoping for the delivery of seed and top dressing this week, onwards and upwards to the coming season!

6th tee first cut!

Its been a little over 5 weeks but the 6th tee has had its first cut today. The height of cut will gradually be taken down and the tee should be in a play very soon.

Spring has finally arrived

Though we are still experiencing frosts in the nights the course is starting to take shape, and I think is safe to say spring has arrived and long may this fine weather continue.

3rd hole surround change

The 3rd hole surround was a little too punishing last year, so we have decided to make it wider on the right so the ball should feed down now towards the green, rather than getting snagged in the rough.

Course has had its first cut!!

The weather has really been in our favour this week, the whole course has had its first cut, the tees have also been cut and will be back in play for the first competition of the year. The greens have also seen their first groom cut and a roll so they are playing and rolling much better.
