If you’re thinking of playing on Christmas day the following rules apply:
1. Clear visibility must be seen from the 1st tee to the 1st fairway 150yd markers.
2. Play can not commence from any other tees including the 7th or 12th tee’s in poor visibility.
3. Course remains closed if the visibility is not suitable at any time.
The majority of the over hanging branches in the gap have been pruned by our tree climbers and the next step is to take a few small oaks on the left and right of the gap. Rather than close the hole for a few days we will complete this work when the course closes and we are able to work in safety.
Work has commenced vertidraining fairways and aprons, this will relieve compaction, improve drainage and health/vigour of the plant. We hope to complete this operation before Christmas.
We are noticing many pitchmarks that have been badly repaired and will take longer to repair, please follow the instructions in the video below on “how to repair a pitchmark”. This will aid recovery and improve surfaces.
Now the soil is beginning to soften it is ideal conditions to start verti-draining the course starting next week with the greens on Monday 19/11/19 for 3 days and the fairways from Monday onwards for 3 weeks weather permitting. Please take time watching the link below for why we carry out these operations.
