Very Wet Weekend!!
the evening of Friday 6th of July, parts of the Golf Course could have been
mistaken for one of the Great Lakes.
However, by the Saturday Morning, the water
had drained away and the Course was open as usual!!
on Friday afternoon, Reception did receive a call from a very disgruntled member who saw this floating down the 7th.

Golf in April 2012!
Fore!!!!! The ball flies from the Club – straight down the freshly mown Fairway, narrowly missing the carefully manicured edge of the freshly raked bunker, and comes to rest in the perfect spot for the second shot to the Green. The second shot drops 6 foot from the pin and rolls forward on the pristine surface of the carefully mown and gently rolling surface of the green. It stops 2 feet from the pin and the golfer taps in for a “Birdie Three”. The reality probably, is – if you played in April, the rain is horizontal, the wind force 7 strengthening to storm force 10, you shanked it off the tee straight out of bounds. Three off the tee lands in the bunker which is full of water from the torrential rain. The next shot lands in the rough which, because of the rain, has not been mown and resembles a farmer’s field of mowing grass 15 inches tall. On finally reaching the green the ball refuses to roll straight on the wet grass and you three putt. 8 on a Par 4 – that’s a good start – but that has been golf in April 2012! May has started much better and the Course looks superb – well done to the boys for all their hard work.
