Sunshine and showers forecast for today. We have had a fair amount of rain the last couple of days. Buggys are only allowed on the front 9 and must stick to the paths. Trollies are on. Please take care.
Please firstly note that the 11th hole is closed for the next couple of days for irrigation works. Please use the practice hole to the left of the 8th green as your replacement hole. Buggy’s are on the front 9 only and only to the paths. Trolley’s are on.
This morning Mj Abbotts return for a few weeks to install further Irrigation and a few other things to our great course. Have a look below.
Between us we will start installing further improvements to our new Perrot Irrigation system.
The work includes sprinkler installation to the 11th fairway and also parts of the 14th fairway. We will also be adding sprinklers to the 2nd tees, surrounds on holes 7,12,13,14 and further sprinklers to the 10th approach. Please be aware that holes 1,10,11 and 14 will be closed when work is being done but no more than one hole will be closed at a time. The par 3 normally the practice green to the left of the 8th green, will be used as the substitute hole when these holes are shut
Other works to be done will include the new water mains installed from the road across the bottom of the driving range , across the 1st approach , in front of the 2nd tee and then connected to the new Pump House. The new 3 phase electric cable will also be taken across the same route and also join into the new Pump house. The Irrigation holding tank will also be finished, computer software and irrigation programme control system updated and then everything connected up. The new state of the art Perrot Irrigation equipment /Mj Abbot install will be all ready to rock n roll!
No other Golf Course in Essex will have such an efficient modern Irrigation system. We were in great condition last year, and we should be even better this year.
I ask again for all golfers to be patient and understanding while these works take place. I will each day let the pro shop know and update the website and ‘team up’ calendar as to where works are being done.
On a different subject i’m sure you will have noticed we have a problem with the 4th green. Between our agronomists, my own staff and myself we believe we have established a very good theory as what’s wrong with it and are now taking the necessary steps to get it sorted. I will give you the full story on it once we are 100% sure of what has happened.
We had a visit from this man on Tuesday afternoon.
What a very very pleasant man, happy to talk and for me despite being a 125% Gooner was really impressed to hear of his passion for West Ham and his desire to take to take them higher in the league. He asked me for a selfie, which I was happy to give him.
Enjoy your golf . Enjoy your Course . Enjoy your club, remember its yours!
