Course Works in Progress

Thanks to the heavy machinery of Mike Brown, brought all the way from his farm in Wickepin , together with  Barry Jackson on the Club tractor , a number of large dead trees , limbs and stumps have been  removed and stacked ready for burning at the first available opportunity.

Further renovation work on several greens is to be followed up.

Notification of this work will be advised.

We are also working on submitting a proposed Three  Year Plan for Golf so that we may be able to attract  some outside grant money to enable improvements to be carried out.
