Summer Has Arrived 
The Back Nine Holes opened this weekend, and Members were delighted to play straight 18 Holes in sunshine and on an excellent Course, well prepared by the hard-working Course Staff.
It is also good to report Golf Buggies are now allowed on to the Course, using pathways where available and otherwise,  driving on the rough areas only.
Summer Golf is officially opened and in play.  Let us all enjoy a good golfing season.
The Three Rs
Repair the Pitch Marks
Replace the Divots
Rake the Bunkers
This is good golf etiquette,  shows respect for fellow golfers and for Course Staff,  who have much work to keep on top of and certainly should not have to repair the Greens,  Bunkers and Grass areas after us Golfers.
