Care of the Course – Winter Conditions
We are extremely lucky that our course is built on such free draining land and that affords members the opportunity to play golf right throughout the year. It’s only a very small price to pay for this privilege to ensure that we all make an extra effort to repair our pitch marks, replace our divots and rake the bunkers when the course is at its most vulnerable.
Please bring the divot bags out with you each time you play golf and use the sand to repair any divots you come across on the course.
The greenkeepers have asked members to be especially careful on frosty mornings not to cause damage to the greens by walking on to the greens with iced-up shoes. Ensure that all ice built up on golf shoes is removed before walking on to the greens. If damage is caused to the greens in this fashion, the only option for the greenkeepers will be to close the course on frosty days in future.
There is still plenty of time to get in the good books at home by bringing home a Turkey in time for Christmas. It is a 9h Singles Stableford competition over the First 9 only. Members can play Monday to Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Entry costs €4 and a new competition will start every 20 entries. To enter, put your name in the competition book and pay your entry fee in the Pro Shop before commencing your round. If the Pro Shop is closed when you are starting, please leave a note at the Pro Shop and pay when you finish. Placing everywhere (except, of course, within a hazard) within 6 inches is permitted for the Turkey Singles. The winners of each Turkey competition will carry 2 shots into subsequent competitions.
