Our course is ‘on course’..

Categories: News

With rumours of the season being able to start in some way in mid-May (don’t hold us to that!) we have a few more photos to add to our update on the course below.

Unfortunately the season has been delayed due to the C-word. But C also stands for course and coming on creditably. So whilst the frustration grows for lack of play the grass is actually growing quite nicely in the background. With the warmth of the current April sunshine and the sprinklers set the fairways and greens have been given a good start this year.

No course grows into the right shape without the right work. Nigel and Steve have been on the course throughout and the hard work is certainly bearing fruit. The Winter Leaguers will recall the sodden ground underfoot in the last few months but now we are fast going the other way with the hardening greens and the sand, well, resembling sand. In fact, a quick check in with Steve and we’ve now put out the sprinklers to concentrate some water onto the greens overnight. If the wind stays quiet and the sun keeps shining the growth on the greens will come on no end.

So while all the hard work is being done and the course is being prepared for that first day’s play we’ve a few photos to show you how fantastic our course really is. Not only is the course itself fantastic but it’s location is as good as it gets to play golf.
