- The course will be closed for play on Monday and Tuesday of this week to allow the greens staff to core and sand the tees and greens. The practice area will still be available (not the practice green).
- With the repairs complete to the bobcat, the paths project will continue after the green's renovations. The next path to be done is the one around the 7th green/8th tee.
- The 4th fairway is back in use and the GUR has been removed. Check out the photographs to see what it was like just 4 1/2 months ago. There are also a number of areas which were posted as GUR and have now been returned to normal play.

"The John Owens Finals was contested on Sunday with Tony Hobson and Peter Metcalf winners 3 and 2 over Alec Dietsch and John Jones. Tony and Peter were never headed in the high quality match, with 6 holes won with birdies, 9 holes won or squared in pars and only 1 hole squared in bogeys. The match was highlighted by quality shot making and excellent putting and Tony and Peter were worthy winners."
Congratulations to the winners and to all who took part, and thanks to John Buchanan for taking on the referee duties on a Father's Day.
Sunday 6th September. The Sunday White course competition. A small field of 10 players in the contest. Up and coming junior Angus Malcolm (21) scored a fine 42 points to win the day from Justin Smith (13) with 36 points. Balls were won down to 35 points via count back.
A Little Humour.
This cartoon is very appropriate and the changed procedure for moving from the 15th green to the 16th tee and through to the 16th fairway has been implemented to protect players from being hit by errant shots. Make sure the others in your group are aware of the procedure.
Now Go out and Enjoy a Game of Golf!!
