The amount of rainfall we have experienced over the first 2 weeks of June couldn’t be more of a contrast from this time last year. As many of you will have noticed the course stood up to the rain relatively well in places. Some areas on the course did require some remedial action and resting - for example the path leading to the 13th green.

After all this rainfall, we do feel the course has coped relatively well. We continue to ask for your support - should you see any pitch marks on greens it would be greatly appreciated if you could repair your own and any others that you may come across while you’re enjoying your round.

The rainfall also caused some issues in some of our bunkers on the course too. We are currently taking on the task of going around each bunker and fluffing the base of the sand up as the rain had compacted it causing the bunkers to become solid in places. I'm sure you all can understand this is not a quick and easy job with the number of bunkers we currently have, but we are doing our best to be as quick and efficient as possible.

You may have noticed some areas of significantly thicker rough has been cut down. This is all part of our “thinning” process. We do not plan on cutting these areas down on a permanent basis but to thin the sward composition down and therefore make the grasses come back thinner and have more desirable grass species in there to make the area more playable should your ball land in these spots.
