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 from 8am daily. Buggies are permitted today but should ONLY BE DRIVEN IN SEMI ROUGH AND NOT FAIRWAYS PLEASE. Trollies should please be kept away from tees & green surrounds and outside green roped areas. Play should only be from design

Wet winter weather washed out the already rearranged reverse greensomes at Castletown Golf Club on Saturday. The next round is scheduled for January 12th and the final round may now take place the week after that. A dozen players did venture out on the previous Sunday in the nine holes stableford. That event was won by Bronwen Raatgever (32) who went round in a nifty nine over par for 27 points, six clear of the field.
