Adopt a Hole

Latest News : Adopt a Hole

Every month in his report the Greenkeeper makes a request that golfers repair their pitch marks. Despite this, there has been little reduction in the number. 

Many members do repair their own and others pitch marks, many members believe they make no pitch marks so have nothing to repair. The fact remains we have many pitch marks on the greens.

In an effort to address this, we'd like to ask that all members participate in this trial for the duration of the playing season.

We'd like ALL members to adopt ONE hole and focus on the GREENS.

Whether you make pitch marks or not, on this one green, if you see any pitch marks, please repair them.

If you do not have a pitch mark repairer, there are FREE ones available from the ProShop.

If you've never repaired a pitch mark or are unsure how to, please ask in the Pro Shop when you collect your FREE Pitch Mark repairer. They'll be happy to show you. As will the Greens Staff. As I'm sure will other players.

If EVERYONE focuses on one hole to start with, we will see a reduction. Of course we'd still like you to repair any others you make, on any hole.

To ensure every hole is covered, we've allocated each Surname Initial with a hole on the course. (See below)
