Work on the Greens Wednesday 1st August

.

We have all been pleased with the condition of the greens during the season so far. One reason for the great condition is the regular work undertaken on the greens, both during the winter and during the summer season.

On Wednesday 3rd August, the koroing on the greens will take place which involves small ridges cut into the greens to remove unwanted organic matter and freshen them up before the greens team fill with sand. By doing the work now, the greens will recover over the next couple of weeks ahead of other competitions we have later in August.

On Wednesday, the team doing the koroing should be finished by 9.30 am but the greens team will then be sanding the greens. If you have a tee time booked for Wednesday, we apologise in advance for any disruption to your round whilst work takes place. They will obviously be working on one green at a time to minimise the disruption. The work will be finished ahead of the bulk of the field competing in the Midweek Competition.

New Tee Blocks

.

You will have noticed around the course that we have put new Blue tee markers on each hole. We have recently had the course remeasured to ensure the Blue course counts as a qualifying course for handicap purposes.

Whilst many people will assume it is for juniors, it is actually an “academy” course. New starters to the game may feel more comfortable starting on the shorter blue course before transitioning to the longer red, yellow or white course as their game develops.

Along with the Blue course being measured, we have been allocated a Slope Rating off the blues for both men/boys and women/girls. Whilst doing the slope ratings, we now also have a slope rating for men off the red tees. The revised slope rating board (near the pro Shop) will be amended to include the additional slope ratings as soon as possible, together with a new blue tee scorecard.
.
Allied with our existing slope ratings and tees, we are now in a position, particularly in winter, to vary the tees used for competitions. It also gives members the option to play a social round on the shorter courses should time be an issue; perhaps returning to golf from injury or maybe just offering a different challenge to the existing tees.

Whilst being remeasured for the blue tees on the course, you may have noticed the 100 and 150 markers on the course and some white temporary markers near to the distance markers. The 100 and 150 markers have been laser measured now rather than the previously used “clickwheel” (if you remember back to school days!). The new distance markers will be relocated by the greens team shortly.
