General Notes
Clubhouse Refurbishment
Work continues apace on the refurbishment of the Bar/Lobby area of the Clubhouse with work on schedule.
Painting of the different areas will continue throughout the week causing disruption and closure of some facilities.
Details of the improvements can be seen on the Electronic Display Board located in the foyer of the Clubhouse.
As the project progresses members will receive weekly updates outlining the works being done.

Week 4. Monday, 14 to Friday, 18 October.
The painting contractors continue their work and will, once again, result in areas of the Bar and Lobby being closed off at varying times.
The programme of works is scheduled for completion on the first week of November with an official launch to be held on Friday, 08 November.

Social Mixed Golf
The final outing of Social Mixed Golf will be held next Saturday, 19 October.
Participants are requested to sign in by 14.10 for a shotgun start at 14.30.
The competition will be a 13 Hole Champagne Scramble and will be followed with Finger Food.

Course News
As the softer conditions prevail and some members continue to ignore the pitch marks made by their approach shots.
It the responsibility of each and everyone of us to ensure we look for and repair same immediately.
If we do this we will have excellent greens throughout the winter and greens of the highest standards come the Spring.

Please remember to:-
Replace divots – with sand mix
Repair pitch marks
Rake Bunkers
