Your club needs new members. Here’s how you can help.

Find a friend, family member or someone you know of who has expressed an interest in playing golf.

Introduce that person as your Golf Buddy and he or she can play golf and use club facilities for two months TOTALLY FREE with no obligations.

The inaugural Golf Buddy period starts on December 1 and lasts until January 31.

* The idea is to help your Golf Buddy become comfortable with golf so that they will decide to become a fee paying club member.

Greenkeeper's Report

There has been some discussion about the rough lately. The question has been asked, when do we cut it down? The answer is, from the start of December all the rough will be cut.

Each year we selectively spray the rough to control grass weeds. We allow the fine grass (Vulpia hair grass) to grow because of its characteristics – i.e fine texture, easy to find balls and play out of (compared to other grasses in the rough). Allowing this grass to grow and reproduce is a cost effective way of improving turf quality. Because it is an annual grass it starts to die off once it has reproduced. This process is usually completed in the start of summer. The seed lies dormant until most germinate in autumn. Most golf courses have rough consisting of ryegrass, rats tail or tussock type grass which is very tough to play out of and expensive to manage. We are very fortunate to have such a desirable grass growing naturally on our course.

Bunker faces. As you may already know, we have a valuable resource in the triangle, our sand quarry. We use the sand to top dress or greens and to top up our bunkers. Because the sand is so fine that blows it out of the bunkers causing undercutting and erosion around the edges. To combat this we have reshaped many bunkers and grown grass in the faces. We oversow the bunkeer faces in spring with a mixture of fescue grass. We allow these grasses to become established and anchored to the bunker face before we cut them down short. It also gives the mature plants time to produce seed and grow new roots.
