Course Work and Conditions 

Course Staff are battling the weather elements daily.  Short of putting a roof over 140 acres, there is nought the guys can do about wet conditions.   They have been scarifying Greens, maintaining Fairways and Rough areas when ground allows. Trees have been pruned, Bunkers dug, pathways repaired, Machinery yard cleared, preparations in place for Planting of new trees..

All the Men need now is a dry day.

Members can help the Course and Course Staff by remembering to Replace Divots, Repair Pitch Marks, and leave no rubbish about.
