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.
All Members are please required to repair pitchmarks & fill divots with sand bags or sand boxes on tees. Please check the daily tee-sheet before play and book yourself a tee time.

Robert Braide (4) returned to winning ways, stepping in with 39 points to secure the Simcocks sponsored Stableford on Saturday. Braide, who just happens to be the financial controller at Simcocks, took the money with a thrifty three over par performance, which included two birdies and thirteen pars. Double bogeys on the 8th and 11th, plus a bogey on the 15th, being the only blemishes.

Whether our Anthony Hopkins needs to wear ‘The Mask of Zorro’ is debatable, but he certainly slashed a few shots off his handicap (22) by winning the Neville Peterson Memorial Trophy with 42 points at Castletown on Saturday. Playing ‘target golf’ Hopkins fashioned four gross pars which helped him net seven birdies and ten pars. Only the 6th, on which he scored a nett bogey, caused him to card less than two points.
