Over the last few weeks your committee has implemented a few changes to improve our course. These changes are as follows:
New Drop Zones:
There are new drop zones on the 2nd, 4th, 5th and 16th holes. There is a full explanation, location and description of ruling on the notice board in the Spike Bar hallway. Please take the time to check these as it will not only help your game, but hopefully speed play as well.
The unsightly 150m and 100m poles have been removed at the request of our hard working ground staff and will be replaced with fairway distance “plates”. The decision to remove these was not taken lightly, but with most players having access to distance measuring devices and all sprinkler heads displaying distance it was considered a fair agreement.
Hole of the day
There are now black sand containers that will be placed on the “hole of the day”. I urge all members to utilise these as they contain a mixture of both sand and seed. They will be located roughly half way along the fairway (both sides) and give all members a chance to assist Shane and his team in helping improve our fairways. Using them to repair not only your own divot but others that you see will go a long way to making our course great. Please do not forget that divots in the rough need to be repaired as well as on the fairway. Also, pitch marks on the greens are quickly becoming a problem again, repair them when you see them (even if not yours) while waiting to putt. Our greens are in great condition at the moment and this will only make them better
