Changes to course layout:
The GUR along both sides of the 7th fairway which was in place to protect the wild flower areas has been removed as there has been no planting or re-seeding of the areas.
These areas are penal, so best advice would be for anyone hitting a shot into either area to play a provisional.
There is a GUR area on the left hand side of the 7th where the spoil from the path was put and this has been identified by blue stakes placed from 7th green all way to back of 9th green.

Dear Members

I am delighted and extremely honoured to take up the position of Club Captain to which I look forward to with great enthusiasm.

We as a committee believe we are in the strongest position we have been in for years with the drive and leadership of our house secretary John Medley, who works tirelessly behind the scenes keeping everything running smoothly.

To Kevin and Julie and all their staff who provide us with a first class service of excellent food and beverages, also the Professional staff in the shop who as always have a great attitude and drive along with an excellent array of knowledge and products which all put together to make us the envy of others.
We look forward to working with Craig and his staff of greenkeepers to provide a course to be proud of.

All of the above would not be possible without the backing of past and present committee members who give a tremendous amount of time and effort to ensure the club is running as smoothly as possible and I thank everyone in advance for their efforts.

We will strive to carry out more upgrades to the club starting with the mens toilets being totally modernised along with other projects in the future, all of which will be carried out with the minimum disruption to all.

Yours
Graeme Turnbull
