15th Green Renovation

Work to completely rebuild the 15th green started on Monday 17th September 2018. This will mean the temporary green will be in play for many months as the new green is unlikely to be back in playing condition until late summer 2019. 

Please note that whilst work is being carried out on the new green during the week that the 15th hole is likely to be out of play and the 16th tee moved forwards.

This green has suffered during the winter months for many years and last winter was out of action from November through to early May. Water was just not draining away and remedial work was long overdue. The finance for this has finally been made available by SIV and we welcome this project to improve the course.

We regret that some people may well be unhappy whilst this work is carried out. However, it is part of a course improvement plan which will restore our course to one that we can be proud of once again, and to rival many private golf clubs!!

Hollow Tining

All the greens, except the 15th, were hollow tined in the week commencing 3rd September 2018. This is essential maintenance work which has regrettably not been carried out for a few years. The consequences of this failure have been very evident, particularly during the winter months, with a few greens being regularly out of action for several months.

The current work should give a much improved chance of fewer temporary greens in the winter. It has been done now to still take advantage of grass growth whilst weather conditions are favourable. 

This action is always unpopular but it is necessary short term pain for long term gain. Most golf clubs carry out this work during late summer / early autumn to ensure the quality of greens for the following year.
