Garden 3.JPGDoesn't the garden in front of the Club House look "a picture" at present, with all it's color, bird baths etc.!!!  A big thumbs up to Dawn Forbes, Marlene Molnar and others who have helped them both with planting and maintenance, including Nola Stacey who has been feeding the roses and one of the guys who sprayed them with white oil the other day.. You may have noticed this morning that Dawn and Marlene have also begun some work around the garden beds on the 10th tee, which has already given them a lift. We'll be rivalling Augusta before we know it.

computer image.jpgClub Web Site is a great way to find out the latest news on things going on around the club as well as checking out match results which are usually available on the site the same day or early next.

Can you please let your golfing buddies know about it and how to log on. The more we get using the site the better. If you have any "newsy" items you'd like to submit we'd love to hear from you. Simply email details through to '" or pass them on to me 

Blank Photo.pngAs it's hard to catch up with everyone, if you haven't had your photo taken, it would be great if you can email one, so that it can be included with results,

 Repairing Pitch Marks 

Pitch mark.jpgHow lucky are we to have such excellent greens. We owe it to Colin and his staff as well as fellow members to do our best to look after them. Repairing pitch marks is one way we can assist in this regard. The marks can cause the grass in the depression to die, leaving not just a scar but also a pit in the putting surface. Done properly and promptly the mark will normally heal within 24 hours- otherwise it could cause more damage and take 3 or more weeks for the grass to recover. So let's always fix our pitch marks and, if time allows, any others we notice on the green, Don't forget too to  fill any divots on and off the fairway.

Plug Mark_2.jpg

Never insert the prongs into the depression itself, but at the rim of the depression. Pushing the bottom of the depression upwards only tears the roots and kills the grass.

It would be appreciated if everyone could be mindful of the need to keep up a good pace around the course to mimimise hold ups for groups behind. 

This is especially important given our ever increasing number of players
