Course Clean-up

Following the storms over the week-end, there is a substantial amount of broken branches and debris around the course. The course committee, under John King, are looking for some volunteers to help out with the general collection of this loose debris.

Anyone who is available and willing to help out are requested to convene in the car park on Wednesday at 10.00hrs. The session is expected to finish at 13.00hrs. approx.

Please bring gloves and a wide rake if you have one.

A big thank you must go out to the divot repair team who, turned up on Monday and  removed all the pellets caused by the hollow coring thus allowing Sean Dowling and his team a clear run at sanding the greens to-day, Tuesday.

Well done to all concerned.


Divot Bags

Please check if you have any divot bags in your car and return them to the club. We now are back to the situation where the bags are refilled and you can collect from the stand on your way out to golf.

Please, please remember to collect a Divot repair bag, particularly when you are teeing off from the fifth tee.
