COURSE NOTICE - Monday 23rd July 2018
Due to the glorious weather we are experiencing the Course is suffering to the extent that ‘cracks’ are appearing in the Fairways, some of which may ‘swallow’ a golf ball
As a temporary measure, all ‘cracks’, through the green, are deemed Ground Under Repair and relief may be taken by dropping the ball at the nearest point of relief, no nearer the hole.
NB This ruling also applies to the ‘drainage slits’ cut in front of the 9 th Green.
