Advice from Complex manager…

With immediate effect, Winter Rules (Preferred Lies) are in operation on the golf course. The white tee markers have been removed from the course to allow greater protection throughout this coming winter. We have also increased the height of cut on greens and therefore players may experience slower greens in the coming weeks. Members are allowed to play their winter knockout matches from the permanent white posts, but regular club competitions will continue to be played from the yellow markers.

Complex manager’s update

Please find below latest comments from Complex manager Jim McLeod regarding ‘on course’ observations made by the Committee at the last meeting:

1/ The saplings between the 12th/13th fairways are tied to the posts with string, will this survive the winter?  Green staff will be monitoring this. I will suggest to them that the string be replaced with proper rubber tree supports.

2/ Can you please supply yardage on the tee for 2a.  Completed

3/ Holes on the 5th & 16th have been put in positions that are virtually impossible to get near.  I have advised green staff as to these issues and I hope that this will not happen in future.

4/ Broken fences – are they going to be fixed? Currently our contractors MGD are preparing a condition report in respect of all fencing. This will then be discussed with TRDC in the very near future.

Repairs to the first green.

You will all be pleased to hear that the work at the back of the 1st Hole has now been completed and marked GUR
Should make those birdies or pars on the the first just a little easier.
