Course Update

(From Friday 2nd July)

Course is all prepared for Captains day tomorrow.

We hope our captain Ally has a great day! Greens are continuing to run well and received a liquid feed this week to aid nutrition. Greens were also micro tined to allow air to access the root system.

Lots of in house machinery maintenance to ensure machinery is performing at its best, this week saw our surrounds mower (John Deere 8000A) have new cylinders installed and our sprayer was in need of a new exhaust.

Small jobs such as the 9th stairs have been strimmed and gorse cut for a cleaner look.

Next week will see the team carry out a heavy verti cut operation on the surrounds, this will take all of Monday and possibly run into Tuesday, we ask everyone playing for their patience and understanding during this time.

Our new information board made from recycled plastic is looking great, thanks to TM Amenities Ltd 🔥 We hope everyone has a great weekend.

Thanks,The Greens Team

Lindsay Reid

Lindsay Reid, one of our members, is planning to do a very special challenge on 8th July. Lindsay is attempting to play 4 rounds of golf in one day in support of Prostate Cancer.

“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. More than 47,500 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year – that’s 129 men every day. Every 45 minutes one man dies from prostate cancer – that’s more than 11,500 men every year. 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Around 400,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer.”

He will be starting at 04.30am and hopefully finishing by 9.00pm and all whilst wearing a kilt.. To raise funds, he is planning to run a competition, which will entail guessing how many shots it takes him to complete the 4 rounds -gross score.

Multiple prizes will be on offer, i.e. 4 ball at Roxburghe, 4 ball at Brampton, 4 ball at Stocksfield and the Chair’s car parking space for use on a Sunday until the end of the year. Entries will be £5 (cash if possible) and there will be a container and envelopes in the bar area plus a donation tin to purchase the Prostate Cancer’s Man of Men badges.

Please support Lindsay and Prostate Cancer if you can.
