Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 limitations, the usual ceremonial events held at BGC will not occur this year. A flag lowering ceremony will be held for the club by David Farthing on our behalf. There are other ways for members to show their support for those who gave of themselves for our country in times of war. One of these is to "show a light", where individuals or families hold a candle or a light at 6am on their own driveway (stay separated from your neighbours) and recite the Ode. Lest We Forget.
- The 'long-awaited' 4th fairway extension has begun (see the photos) and as a result a temporary tee has been setup. The hole now plays from amongst the trees below the green, with a distance of 110m.
- The areas on the 'Closely mown Fairways' which have become bare due to the die-off of the grass are to be treated as GUR.
- Please read my coverage of the Crow issues which have been occurring on the 5th fairway and green (see my "Breaking News" blog).
- The newly extended cart storage unit has nearly been completed. We are just waiting for the electrician to wire up the new section to provide lighting and charging power for carts.
- I've passed on to the Ground Staff the many complimentary comments I've received from players , regarding the fantastic state the course as currently being presented. I'm sure you all echo that appreciation.
