For the latest information on the course please see course status at the bottom of home page.
As you may have seen, our course maintenance has been completed with the recovery phase in motion. Shaun and John have itemised the various tasks which will be completed this winter and to ensure we are constantly improving our course. We have also provided an irrigation update for you all to read.
As some of you have already expressed, we will ensure to update our course status to allow you all to be informed of any work that is being carried out that particular day prior to playing.

This winter we will also be completing Phase One of the planned irrigation project. Phase One includes all works within the boundaries of the Clubhouse and in particular the following: -
Refurbishment of existing borehole.
Installing new borehole.
Providing pump for course irrigation.
Associated pipework and electrical work.
Some of these works have been completed and it is anticipated that the cost of the works is grant funded and supplemented by fund raising activities largely completed.
Phase Two of the project is to provide the irrigation network to the greens outside of the boundary of the Clubhouse. This will be a more long-term project and various grants will be applied for to achieve this work.
