Despite a forecast of thunder and showers, the fair weather held for (almost) everyone on Sunday and a great day of golf was had. The course is in fantastic condition, thanks to Craig the greenkeeper and his team crew for all their hard work.
Thanks also to Diane and her team behind the scenes, who kept us all well fed and watered, and Murray and Hugh for welcoming all the players before and after their round.

Some members have expressed concern about the felling of trees on the course. The Greenkeeper and Committee do take expert advice on Course maintenance and, sadly sometimes this involves the removal of trees to allow light onto the course and improve growth. A tree to the left of the 8th green is to be removed, as soon as possible, as it is rotten and dangerous.
The green keeper and volunteers have been working hard over the winter to improve the course. Scrub has been cleared and trees cut down. A new welfare unit for the greenkeeper has been installed and the machinery shed is having a makeover. All this in preparation for another excellent season.
The club is running an online survey in order to better understand the views and needs of the members, so this is a chance to have your say!
