Month: July 2020

Getting there

Morning everyone hope you are well and enjoying your Club and Course.

We are really enjoying seeing so many Golfers, it certainly makes the hard work my staff do rewarding work.

The Clubhouse is also looking great now with a real Club atmosphere!

The service and food Tina, Paddy and the gang are providing is excellent !

Loving the bi fold doors

Well we are winning with the drainage and i wanted to give you the schedule for the next 2-4 weeks

We have Primary and Main drainage left to do on the 3rd hole next week starting from Tuesday and envisage the hole being closed until Friday, but please check with the Pro shop each morning for an update. The following week will will do the 6th hole and that will be closed from the Monday the 27th july hopefully only until the Thursday of that week.

Nearly done

After that, week commencing the 3rd August we will start getting bunkers back in play and filling in the bunkers that have been agreed.

We were going to start the secondary drainage in August but owing to ground conditions we have decided to delay this until September now.

Lol Green has introduced a ‘Divot bag Tree’ which is at the 1st hole. Please take a bag and fill your divots as you go round and leave the empty bag at the 18th when you finish. Many thanks for that

A quick moan , pitch marks and YOUR LITTER ! Please repair your’s and any other pitch marks you see. Regards litter, please use the bins provided its awful to see so much litter around the Golf course

Quite like the one on the left!

Finally a request. I want to get the greenstaff some more uniform as they are looking a little tired ( not the Greenstaff the uniforms !!) Over ythe years we have kindly been sponsored by members and put the Members’s logo on all our clothing to advertise their buisness . I am looking for a member or members that would kindly help as a Sponser? If you would like to support your Greenstaff please message me on [email protected] . It would be very much appreciated.

Enjoy your Golf , Enjoy your course

Remember……..IT’S YOURS!



Busy, Busy, Busy, Busy

Hi all, I hope you are all safe and enjoying your Golf Course?

We have been working hard to keep bringing the quality of the surfaces to high standard. I have only heard positive good reports so hopefully we are doing ok !

A few weeks ago I said a few weeks ago I would update you on the Drainage works planned for July, so here we go !

Next week we will complete the Primary drainage on the 4th hole. The tees will move forward approx. 150 yards so we can work safely while you enjoy your golf.

The following week we intend to finish the 5th hole and this hole will be closed whilst we work and the winter green next to the 8th will be used as a par 3.

The last two weeks of July we intend to install mains and primary drains into the 3rd,6th and the 2nd hole

I will do my best to keep you informed via teamup and the proshop the days any holes are closed.

We appreciate this will cause some disruption but hopefully you will understand that we all want to get the drainage completed on the front 9 holes ready for the winter.

During August we will then commence installing the secondary drainage which is a lot less disruptive.

Secondary Drainage

The work in July is very labour intensive and will take up to five of my staff at times to install the drainage. Owing to this it has been decided by Lol Green, Roger Jefferies, Jack our professional and myself that we will not reinstate the bunkers until early August.

Therefore ALL bunkers should be treated as GUR and the appropriate rule shall apply.

We have consulted with the English and Essex Golf unions that qualifying competitions can still be introduced from July, as one of the Covid 19 options, is to leave all bunkers as GUR.

I hope you continue to enjoy your golf , please support Tina and Paddy as they open a limited clubhouse and if you are asked to do or not do something by them or their staff please respect that .Finally please stick to the social distancing rules at all times to keep us all safe.

Enjoy Course Enjoy your Course…….. It’s yours remember!
