Let’s get some fresh air

The Front 9 holes re-open today, though please note the 5th and 8th hole will be shortened as we complete some drainage work across them is completed. Please note we are slowly getting surfaces cut but there are some very wet areas still so we have to be patient. There may be still a couple of temps in play. Buggy’s and all Trolley’s must stay on the paths at all times please.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO RESPECT THE GUIDELINES FOR DEALING WITH COVID-19. IT’S GOOD TO GET FRESH AIR SO PLAY SOME GOLF BUT KEEP SAFE.

Another day

We want to wait another day before opening up the front 9 holes as we need to pull a main drain from the 7th, across the 8th and 5th. Thank you for your understanding. The back 9 holes are all open and have 1 temp in play. Buggy’s and all Trolley’s must stay on the paths.

I will be releasing an update on the drainage and how it’s going either today or tomorrow. Please also remember we are testing the irrigation today, we have to put each sprinkler up for 1-2 minutes, we have not gone mad I promise !

Please remember there are no restrictions on playing golf presently and is a great form of exercise. However, please be sensible and take all necessary precautions as requested by the government.

Drying slowly slowly

Just the back 9 holes open today and 1 temp, but watch this space as we intend to open up more of the Golf course from tomorrow all being well. The Drainage installation is going great and we have almost completed mains and Primary drains on the 7th . Buggy’s and Trolley’s must stay on the paths at all times please

PLEASE NOTE OUR IRRIGATION HAS TO BE STARTED AND CHECKED OVER BY OUR CONTRACTORS AS A SCHEDULED WARRANTY VISIT. THIS WILL TAKE PLACE TOMORROW AND INVOLVES PUTTING SPRINKLERS UP FOR 1-2 MINUTES. WE HAVE NOT GONE MAD IT HAS TO BE DONE !

Getting there!

Firstly please everybody do what you are asked to do namely wash your hands for 20 seconds and be sensible regarding this virus outburst.

The Golf course is slowly drying and we intend to open various other parts of the Course over the coming few days. Today the front 9 will remain shut and there will be a couple of temps on the back 9 holes. Buggy’s and Trolley’s must stay on the paths at all times.
