Warm but dull

Not a great weather day forecast, lets hope they get it wrong! Please note the importance of looking at my latest course update called ‘Catch me if you can!’ as it contains two important messages.

Buggys are on , but please stick to the paths on the front 9 and the roughs on the back 9 . Trolley’s are on

Catch me if you can !

Hi everyone and I hope you are all enjoying Abridge Golf Club?

The Golf course is coming together nicely, but to quote the great lyrics of the 70’s song ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet! ‘ We have so much planned to increase the course’s presentation but it’s early days

From this coming week we will be introducing a new 3 coloured flag system. We will still be using the ABC system as per the scorecard map but this new system will also be used in parallel. Thank you for the kind generous donation from the Gentleman of the 9 Hole Golf Society. Enjoy the video explanation below

I know, I need to get out more !

This week we will be starting our last Spring Renovation work. This involves using this Big Bad boy bit of kit.

We use it to scarify all the fairways and some other areas with. It does a fantastic job. It scarifies and sucks up most of the debris and then we follow behind with a Tractor mounted Blower and a fairway cut. After this in the coming weeks we overseed areas where needed. Click on the video below to see it at work

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

I am sure you will have noticed a low black perimeter fence has been erected around parts of the 1st, 2nd ,3rd and 4th holes ? This is to trap and catch our little dear friends the Great Crested Newts and any other little critters in the area!

We have to trap, record and monitor the area for up to 60 days so we can then start on digging the Irrigation lake.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT ENTER THIS FENCED AREA TO RETRIEVE YOUR GOLF BALL IF YOU HIT IT INTO THE AREA .PLEASE TREAT IT AS A TEMPORARY GUR AREA. DO NOT GO INTO THE AREA TO GET YOUR BALL PLEASE.

If you keep hitting balls into the area may I suggest you do one of three things?

1: Move your stance to change direction? 2. Get a lesson off Jason, Jack, Reece or Bobby ! 3. Take up another sport !!

That’s all from me for now .

Regards Geoff

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