Unfortunately we are now in another lockdown but you can be assured that the green staff are still working hard to improve the course for your return.

The 13th white tee is now complete after being levelled and turfed.

We have now started the driving range tee which should be finished by the end of the week. This should provide a great area to practice from during the winter months and when we have maintenance to do on the grass tee.

As you know we have had a problem with ducks so we have put reflective tape and ultra sonic motion sensors out which seem to be working.

Next week we will start re shaping, draining and re sanding the front bunker on the 18th green and all bunkers on the 1st and 2nd.
We will start verti draining all fairways and approaches and solid tining the greens. All this work is weather dependent but hopefully luck is on our side for once.

Hope to see you all again soon and stay safe !

Unfortunately due to the bad weather a trolley ban is now in operation. This decision was taken to protect the course so hopefully we will not have to close. Thank you all for carrying and protecting your golf course. I will check the condition every day but it looks like the trolley ban will last over Christmas to give the course the best chance to recover but do check the website and answer phone for more information.

We are continuing to work on the course including the new 13th white tee and re shaped 18th bunker. The next bunkers will be the front one on the 18th and then all three on the 1st hole. A new sleeper edge path is now finished behind the 18th green. Photos below.

The day to day work is still continuing on the course with aeration, bunker raking, hand cutting greens,collecting leaves, spraying and general maintenance.

Please enjoy your golf and hopefully the weather will improve in the new year.
