Greens care

Captains Corner : Greens care

I think we'll all agree that our greens are in fantastic condition this year.

Craig and his team are working tirelessly to maintain the high standards we enjoy. 


We've noticed that the edges of the holes, are all too frequently suffering damage.

We can do our bit to help!


Can we all please take care when retrieving a ball from the hole ?

Please don't use the toe of your putter to scoop the ball, or try to 'yank' the flag stick in the hope the ball will come out. 


It was undoubtedly easier during 'covid measures' with the addition of hole stoppers, which were temporarily fitted to enable a ball to be retrieved without touching the flag stick. However the Rules of Golf no longer allow such devices.


Many thanks in advance for your cooperation.
