Question & Answers

Q - I see the fedex final has been re-scheduled for May 5th... why so far away? 

A - As it was originally a Saturday final we wanted to keep it to that day, the next available Saturday due to a busy calender is the 5th May. The final wiill be played from 8am-10am, you can now book into the final via the PSI screen or howdidido.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Q - I was not able to play in the final on the 31st March due to other committments but can I now enter the final in May?

A - Yes, anyone who was in the top 80 is able to enter the final on the new date.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Q - Will the fedex final be played from the summer tees? 

A - No, the final will be played from the winter distance using the winter card and indexes. The winter handicap will also apply.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Q - was surprised to hear the course was open today, why was that? 

A - When the greenkeepers did their inspeciton at 7am the condition was fine and so they left open, on a normal day or work they would of no doubt closed the course early morning. Thankfully there were not too many people who braved todays elements and therefore not too much use.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Q - Im a new member and wondering why there are two competitions on Saturday?

A - Its for two different category's, 0-14 and 15 upwards. There is no payout for this event as the winners are decided by a knockout following this qualifying round, top 16 from each competition go through to a matchplay stage and the final in September. 

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Q - Will the new tee boxes be ready in time for the start of the season in view of the recent weather?

A - This will be reviewed nearer the time, the most concerning is the 12th which is a par 3. If the turf has not bedded in then we will continue to use the forward tee. On the 16th we may also use a forward tee for non comp days.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Q - On the recent members survey the results showed up a desire for more competitions, I am certainly in that camp and love the winter months for that very reason! Has this been given any consideration? 

A - Yes, there will be a 'club sweep' on the alternate day to main club competition. This will be trialled in the early part of the season and then reviewed, there will be the opportunity to play a handicap qualifier off the yellow tees. There are many golfers who simply do not enjoy playing off the white medal tees and therefore it is difficult to keep their handicap both active and realistic. The additional sweep will be a handicap qualifier and generally a singles stableford.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Q - Ive observed that on the new clubhouse plans and think that the proposed layouts look really good and I appreciate the time and effort put into it from the committee. Could the location of female toilets and proximity to main areas be looked at? 

A - Thanks JD, very good point and a one has been addressed. This is the sort of feedback that will assist us as we look forward to this most exciting project. Please check out the latest revision to the plan that re-locates the disabled toilet and a better configuration of the 2nd ladies toilets.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Q - Now that the general meeting has cleared up uncessary spending will the proposed greens works continue? 

A - Correct...... a recent inspection of greens have produced a tremendous improvement in the last 12months which we are delighted with. All the additional sand injection work coupled with regular aeration and dressing through the season has put us in great shape going into this season. However, to continue the improvment we need not take our foot off the pedal and instead capitalise on the vast improvment. Sand injection will take place in May subject to weather conditions and then again in early October. A 3 weeky programme of tining, verti cutting and dressing will improve the playability throughout the season ahead.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Q - Is the works to greens really necessary? To me there is nothing wrong with them so why do it?

A - Work and Maint of Greens should never stop..... we could do nothing and put the good health of the greens at risk. The professional testing has shown the poor condition 12months ago and the huge improvment now. It will be interesting to hear your views in a few months time.
