Winter League:

Winter League Singles and Doubles commences on the 7th/8th November. You will be automatically entered in the Singles competition but if you wish to participate in the Doubles each pair needs to get their names down on the Entry Sheet that will be available on the Notice Board in the Golf Shop - before the first round starts. There is no separate entry fee for these competitions as they are covered in your annual levies.

The committee have amended the doubles competition rules slightly for 2015/2016. Each pair's score will be calculated by using the combination of their best individual scores in 50% of the rounds played, plus 1 round. There is no longer a requirement for the pair’s scores to occur on the same weekend.

Bunker Improvement works:

The resort are commencing major repair works on 5 bunkers on the course. Specifically, the pothole bunkers on the 5th and 13th holes, the bunker to the right of the 9th green and the 2 bunkers in front of the 11th green.
