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 10.30 am. Buggies allowed but PLEASE ONLY DRIVE IN SEMI ROUGH. Please observe Winter guidelines and remain outside of green roped areas. Please repair pitchmarks.

Having attended the finale of the 2009 and 2017 World Tour golf championships Castletown Golf Club member Adrian Copley and his wife Ann were delighted that they were able to do so again this year. They had a wonderful time but sadly their memorable holiday to the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai ended tragically.

The forecasted frost failed to stop Saturday’s sponsored Texas Scramble. 28 teams took part in the Tower Insurance turkey trot which was won with 55.4 by Mark Jones, Alex Townell, Dave Litton and his son Dominic. Their seven under gross par score included five birdies and an eagle on the 3rd.

Tower Insurance sponsored the yellow tees turkey shoot Stableford qualifying competition. Having just been awarded a handicap new member David Kay (30) got off to the perfect start. He made the most of the short course posting 42 winning points from sixteen scoring holes. These included three nett eagles and six nett birdies. Only the dog-leg 4th and the par three 8th escaped his efforts so Kay will now play off (28).
