Well, now the nights are really drawing in and the Autumn weather has started, we have noticed a diminishing number of golfers on the course. Well done to the hardy ones!!! Let's hope that the winter doesn't bring golf destroying weather again!! We have had a huge increase in the yearly contracts this year, which is great. I think it's to do with the new shiney bag tags we are giving out, but Martin thinks it is because the course is looking and playing so fantastic. I have to admit, he is probably right. The increase in members will only add to the competitions we can organise, especially for the over 55's. These are due to start pretty soon, so anyone interested can put their name down in the locker room and join in the fun. No handicap required and you dont need to be a yearly contract holder.
It is lovely to hear all the comments that the course has never looked so good, and we have to agree that it is getting better and better. The new fourth tee should make a difference next season.
You may have noticed that we have changed the times of the driving range this winter. We made the hard desision to close it in the evening. I know this will upset some but it just wasn't cost effective, so sorry to those of you who did use it last winter. (you'll just have to sneak out of work early!! (LOL).
