New Pro Shop
As you may be aware, James & Paul have relocated the shop to the more spacious surroundings of the old Steward’s House. The shop is very well stocked, and if you haven’t been in already, why not take a look. If you are trying to phone the Pro Shop, the new direct line number is 051 448361. The extension number on the main golf club line will be back working shortly. Entries for all competitions will be taken as normal in the new shop. We wish James & Paul the very best of luck in their new surroundings!
Upkeep of the Course
With autumn setting in and winter on the way soon, we all need to take extra care of the course. At this time of year, damage to the course takes a lot longer to heal. Please ensure that all divots are replaced and that all pitch-marks are repaired. The bunkers also need extra attention during the autumn and winter, with regular raking a must to keep them in good condition – please do your part!
Paying your subscription
Why not get a head start on paying next year’s subscription by paying via your card at the bar. You can pay any amount in advance, and you can pay whenever you want. Please contact Anthony in the bar for further details
