News and information from our Abridge Green keepers on whats happening around the course and how they are keeping it in the best condition.

Brrrrr!!

Due to an overnight frost, temporary greens will be in use to start with. Holes 1-4 will remain closed but 5-9, the practice 8th and the back 9 holes will be in play. This means teeing off from the 5th, playing to a temporary green on the 8th and then playing the par 3 practice 8th as an extra hole, thus giving you 15 holes to play. Buggies and all wheeled trolleys are to stay on the paths at all times.

Please take care when walking around the course as its still very wet and slippery. Thank you for your co-operation.

This weekend, only these are happy!

Just thought I would give you all ‘heads up’ re the conditions for this weekend. Whilst it is meant to be dry weather the Golf Course, like every other Golf Course close to us is very wet indeed and needs time to drain down. The Front 9 holes will therefore remain closed all weekend, the back 9 holes will be open but may have a few temp greens. We will update with the pro shop accordingly and review the reopening of the front 9 holes on Monday morning. FOR YOUR OWN SAFTEY PLEASE KEEP ALL BUGGY’S AND ALL TROLLEY’S ON PATHS AT ALL TIMES AND TAKE CARE WHERE YOU WALK. Thank you for your patience. I have today put up around the club the initial plans for Drainage works to commence as soon as we can get our equipment out onto the Course!

The Rain Came Back

After some rainfall last night, there may be some temporary greens in use. Please check at the pro shop for any updates. Holes 1-18 are in play with an artificial tee mat on holes 1 and 16. On the 8th, the grass tee will be in use but please play to the practice 8th green on rather than the main green. All buggies and trolleys are to stay on paths at all times. Please repair pitch marks and divots and enjoy your round.

18 Holes Open

There are 18 holes open with a few minor adjustments. The 1st and 16th will be played from a mat rather than the grass tee boxes, both still as par 4’s. The 8th will be played still from the main tee but then played to the practice 8th on the left of the 8th green. All buggies and trolleys must stay on the paths at all times. Enjoy your round and thank you for your cooperation.
