Now that we are getting into winter golf we must turn our attention to protecting the course as well as providing a course for members to enjoy, this is a difficult compromise to achieve and we hope members will understand the need for the measures we put in place.
The upcoming winter golf program can be viewed on the Fixture list. Currently the Turkey Trot competitions are in progress and there are 6 of theses, as previously stated winnings are posted back to the players purse. The first 4 are singles competitions and there will be an order of merit series based on these with the overall winner receiving a meat voucher, 2nd a bottle of Whisky and 3rd a bottle of Wine.
Preferred lies are now in operation in all bunkers that are in play. You may lift your ball, rake the area and replace the ball within 6 inches of it's original position. Also from time to time some bunkers will be marked with blue stakes, these bunkers are GUR and you may drop out of them with no penalty.
There was an excellent turn out for the Bill Martin Testimonial Challenge on Saturday. 121 players entered and enjoyed the fun format. There were some excellent scores recorded with Nick Cowie winning with an incredible score of 49 pts followed closely by Ian Martinson with 48 pts.
