Adopt a Green
Volunteers are coming forward at a steady pace to “Adopt a Green”. Thank you to those who have already put their names forward. The scheme gives members the opportunity to take ownership of an aspect of course maintenance. Volunteering involves repairing pitchmarks on a particular green and raking the greenside bunkers every time you play. To volunteer, put your name on the “adopt a green” sheet in the bar (near the computer). There will be a prize every month for the most improved green/bunkers.
Please put Friday November 14th, 8pm in your diary as the Men’s AGM takes place that evening. It’s an important evening for the Men’s Section, and it gives members the opportunity to have their say in the operation of our club. Please see the Men’s Notice Board for further information or contact a member of the committee.
