Care of Course – Winter Conditions
With the first real frost of the winter this morning, it’s extremely important that those playing in frosty conditions ensure that they remove any ice built up on their golf shoes before walking onto the greens – otherwise significant damage will be caused to the greens. With the ground very soft at the moment it’s also vital that members make sure to replace divots and repair pitch marks. Work will commence on the bunkers in the next couple of weeks, weather permitting.
Adopt a Green
There are still a small number of spots left for volunteers in the “Adopt a Green” scheme. 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.
Paying Next Year’s Subscription
Now is a good time to consider making some down payments on your subscription for next year to avoid having to pay the whole amount in March. You can make payments towards next year’s subscription at any time in the bar using you GUI Card. You can choose how much you’d like to pay and make as many payments as you want – just ask any of the bar staff for details.
Find the Joker
An error in last week’s results – Pat Whelan was the winner of the draw rather than Pat Wall. The jackpot is a Christmas cracker €4,718 and the next draw will take place after the Club AGM on Friday 5th December. Entries cost €2 and are taken in the bar. Thank you to all who support this fundraiser.
