It’s not been a bad summer so far for growing grass, warm and humid with plenty of the wet stuff, but far from being a normal August it has brought disease to the greens. ANTHRACNOSE, you may have noticed it on the some of the greens particularly the eleventh, small round dark circles that look like broken up fairy rings. Anthracnose occurs in two forms, basal rot and foliar blight, which can develop at different times of the year depending on the weather conditions, hopefully we have it under control. Treatment has been carried out using a heavy dose of iron and a feed of nitrogen.
The news from the new 18th is, we have started building a new forward tee which will be positioned to the left side of the red tee, and the bunkers on the new 18th have been lined, to make them rabbit proof and stone free. In addition work is now under way on creating the beautiful feature bunker that will stop any stray balls over hit down the right hand side of the fairway from running into the gulley.
Course Open. If using a trolley or buggy, please avoid any areas which are particularly wet. Apologies and many thanks for your cooperation.

Pete Thomas (9), Ian Hodgkinson (16), Mark Reynolds (18) and Paul Eckersley (7) tonked in ten birdies between them to win the competition by over two shots which, in this format, is highly unusual as decimal points usually separate the prize winners.

Mark Walker (12) from the Shore Hotel managed 33 points to win on the 15 hole course which was in remarkable condition given the volume of rain it had needed to absorb. A four pointer birdie on the 4th and a double bogey on the 6th were the only variations from the procession of pars and bogeys which led to Walker’s steady seven over par round.
