2nd hole re-opens

15th February 2019

Following some fantastic work by Glenn and the greens staff, the 2nd hole has re-opened for play this weekend.  The bunkers will be in play, however, the bare earth surrounding them should be treated as GUR, although not marked as such. These areas will be turfed early next week.  Please do not touch the drip line around the edge of the bunker.  Also be aware the sand in the bunkers has not been compacted yet so if you do go in them your ball will be more likely to plug.

Best to steer clear of the beach!!
