New Assistant Greenkeeper
The Management Committee is pleased to announce the appointment of Stuart Dalkie as our new Assistant Greenkeeper who commenced on the 12 August.
The damage on the fairway in front of No 1 hole is slow to repair therefore please continue to treat the sand filled damage as GUR and we ask that you avoid taking your carts through this area. Please take full relief for your stance and swing.
Since the implementation of the new rule allowing the flag to be left in while putting there has been discussions regarding the preferred way to remove the ball once holed.
It is not considered etiquette to “whip” your putter into the hole to remove the ball or to lift the pin while the ball remains in the hole. Please simply remove carefully with your hand to avoid damaging the edge of the hole or lifting the cup insert.
For those of us with limited movement, the golf shop does sell an attachment for the grip end of your putter to easily remove said ball.
This month sees the start of qualifying for our Club Championships – all dates are in your programme books and displayed in the Women’s and Men’s foyers along with the conditions of play.
