IT’S GOOD TO BE BACK !
Welcome back everyone of you !! I hope you are all enjoying your time playing your golf and enjoying the course.
I’d like to take this opportunity of welcoming all the new members to our Club that have recently joined and on behalf of all my staff a big thank you for all the support and gratitude you ALL have shown my staff and myself . It’s really appreciated. In case you are not sure what you are missing here is a little taster below. Highlight the link below and Right click on the link and open a new page if the video does not play.
Hope you enjoyed that and show all your friends and bring them up as guests or even new members!Ok lets talk about our plans over the next couple of months. My staff are almost all back now and as they return we will increase the work on the course to give you hopefully an even better experience!
First to answer a question we have been asked a few times . Why are we hand watering areas when we have a new state of the art Irrigation system? Well yes we do have and we can uniformly put at mm of water for whatever we think the surfaces require, however owing to wind, sun exsposure and soil ‘make up’ underneath certain areas you will always get what we call ‘Hot spots’ that will need more water than just covering the whole area .This is also why we use a moisture meter to measure where the ‘hot spots’ on the surfaces are.
So, we will first of all start to get some of the bunkers back in play, this will possibly take us a few weeks. On that note Lol Green, myself and his committee have decided that we will fill in approx 14 bunkers on a permanent basis! ( hopefully handicaps will come down a bit ?). So the chosen bunkers to be filled in will have signs placed in them that they are still GUR. We will formally announce when the rest of the bunkers are back in play, but until further notice treat all bunkers as GUR
Once this is done we will start strimming the longer roughs down and around all of the trees.
In July/ August we will start recommencing the drainage of the front 9 holes which is important we get this done. I will release further news on this nearer the time
I am so so pleased so many of you are back playing golf BUT! Please remember while the Golf Course is so busy it takes a lot longer for us to do our jobs so please give way to the Greenstaff when they are working
Finally please put your litter in the bins, please don’t touch the flagstick, please support Tina and Paddy and also Jack our great Pro as they slowly re-open what they can and finally …
PLEASE KEEP TO THE 2M SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES . IF WE ABUSE IT WE COULD LOSE IT !
ENJOY YOUR COURSE, ENJOY YOUR CLUB….. IT’S YOUR’S REMEMBER!
STAY SAFE . Regards Geoff Course Manager
