Due to staff shortage through illness and the excessive rainfall during this week the Greens Team have made preparing the course for play their priority. The majority of the debris has been cleared and most areas have been cut where it has been possible to do so. The Greens Team will address the fallen trees next week. We fully expect common sense to prevail and for our members and visitors to take suitable relief if necessary from these areas. Thanks for your patience. 🏌️♂️🏌🏼♀️⛳️
After assessment this morning the course is open to play. There is a number of trees down so we are asking golfers to be aware of any unsafe debris. The Greens Team are preparing the course for play then moving on to debris clear up. If anyone is available to help with the clear up please contact Head Greenkeeper Steven on 07792158575. Thank you for your patience.
Due to essential maintenance work on the course and greens, where we will be sharing the hire cost of the machinery. The planned work would clash with the original date for the Closing Pairs Scramble on the Sat 6th October, so the Closing Scramble will now be held on Sat 13th October, the online booking for the Closing Scramble will be available from Friday 14th Sept at 8pm
The course will be open during this maintenance work, but temporary greens may be in place to ensure the safety of the Greens team
Apologies for any inconvenience

Our caterer Stoyan has now left the club as he required more hours during the winter months. His replacement is Nathan who has been helping Stoyan at weekends. Nathan is an experienced chef and I am delighted that he has accepted the position. However Nathan is currently on his honeymoon, therefore until next Friday there will only be pies and sausage rolls available. Nathan will only be working Friday to Sunday so the rest of the week we will be offering soup, pies and sausage rolls. ... See MoreSee Less
