COURSE

Our course conditions are improving after a month’s rainfall in a week. We hope that the dry weather will continue and we can continue to enjoy some good golf.

RULES OF GOLF AND LOCAL RULES

There has been much discussion about the rules of golf and local rules. At present we have 5 Local Rules in place, all of which are displayed on the notice boards between the Locker rooms and on the first tee. It is the players responsibility to know the Rules of Golf. It’s a simple game, hit the ball until its in the hole. If you lose the ball, it’s a penalty of stroke and distance. As always our resident PGA Professional and Rules expert David is on hand to explain any rules.

Our Bridge Club is back in action each Friday morning and we have had a great turn out each week since we started back. We always welcome new members so come along and enjoy a lovely social morning of Bridge. Bring a friend and make new friends!

We are also very grateful to the bridge players, 45 players, outings and guests who are very generous in their weekly support.  The funds raised have funded a number of projects on the course and we will have more improvements during the next twelve months.
