With the new season drawing ever closer, Opening Day is Sunday 24th March, our ladies have been beavering away on the course trimming the gorse. Other work to make the course a little easier for our senior members is also ongoing with a new fairway area in front of the ladies 5th tee and some other parts of fairways being widened. At our last committee meeting it was also decided to assits the elder gentlemen members to continue to play in competitions we will now stop playing to the top green.
We are also delighted to report that to date we now have four new members joining the club two of these making a welcome addition to the ladies section. The ladies are also organising some coaching sessions which will be sructured as new golfer sessions and sessions for the more advanced golfers. We are also in the process of providing a new practice net which will be sighted over by the wooden shed. This will be useful for those who wish to either warm up or practise without having to walk up to the top of the hill. We will also be using this for the junior coaching sessions which will be beginning very soon.
