Great meeting at the club this morning with Scottish Golf's Chief Executive Andrew McKinlay re' our Junior + membership. Many thanks for taking the time Andrew and the tweet.



Lovely start to the day

06/08/2020

A lovely morning, with the sun shining over the course. The forecast looks good for the rest of the day, with no rain forecast for a change. Great day for a game.


Titleist Fitting

05/08/2020

2nd Titleist Fitting sessions ready to get started this afternoon. Next Fitting Day. Monday 24th August. #teamtitleist #titleist #fittingworks #trackman


Course Open

05/08/2020

The course has just opened. The first will remain closed so play will commence from the 17th. Players should then proceed to the 3rd tee from where the course can be played in it's normal sequence.


Course currently closed.

05/08/2020

Given the rain that fell yesterday it's probably not surprising that the course is currently closed. The first remains flooded both sides of the road. On 17/18 there are puddles in the low parts of fairways. The rest of the course is saturated but has dried out better than anticipated and the Greens are dry enough to cut. The water on the first will drain away relatively quickly if the rain stays off. There will be a review at 10am. As soon as I hear if there is any change I will post.


Rain looks on for the day!

04/08/2020

Looks like the rain is on for the day and although it doesn't seem as bad as the forecast it's still pretty heavy. There is currently no affect on the course so the re-scheduled Spring meeting is still on. Updates will be posted if there is any change to this.


Mini Renovations to Greens

03/08/2020

A good start to another busy week at the club. Mini renovations on the greens today/tomorrow. 1,2,8,9-18 today. Light scarify, clean, mow and top dress. Essential to open up the surface allowing the plants to breathe. It will also allow water to get to the drainage system quicker and removes excess thatch from the upper soil profile.
