Club 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 'email@example.com"
As 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
How 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.
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.
