Thursday 17th January: Roll Up - Par / Bogey Competition

On a frosty morning with a scattering of snow lying on the course, 26 players teed up for this competition.

As the day progressed conditions improved - while they were never easy.

Top three prize winners were as follows:

1st: Stewart Weston (2 up), 2nd: Geordie Mawson (1 down), 3rd: Peter Jolly (1 down)

Nearest the Pin winners were: Mike Lisseter (7th) and Rob Bruce (16th).

A full list of results can be seen on Master Scoreboard. Click here to go there.

In case you have not seen the notices on the notice board, here is a copy of the note regarding bunkers from Brett - Head Greenkeeper.

We have started renovation work on some of the bunkers. So far some bunkers on holes 5 & 6 have had sand removed and have been reshaped and/or resized. New bunker drainage has been added where appropriate or existing drainage has been cleaned out. Recycled astroturf liner has been added to some of the bases to eliminate sand contamination with stones/dirt.

Weather permitting, we hope to complete remodelling and lining by the end of January. Turfing will then be done and after a period of time allowing the turf to root sand can the be put back in the bunkers, bringing them back into play late March/ early April.

In total about 15 bunkers are due for refurbishment, mainly on holes 5,6,8,10,11,12 and 18.
