We seem to be having much better luck with the weather this year, the course was well watered on the Friday prior to perfect weather this weekend. John Morgan and his team managed to get sufficient drainage work done to present an excellent course to the Glamorgan Seniors. Although those playing in the event did get a bit wet, the feedback from the course was most positive.
The Drainage works are continuing this week and should be completed sometime next week. The weather forecast is excellent so the remaining work in front of the sixth hole and the new drainage pipe on the 15th should be completed this week. That only leaves the some small drainage works on the 12th to be completed early the following week. The gravel banding work will then commence when the ground is slightly softer, sometime in early Oct. The gravel banding will link into the pipe network that has been laid on 6, 8 and 12. The 5th and 15th will also be gravel banded in some areas.
In my previous rant, I mentioned that we will might lose some locker space for a new sunken bath and spa’s. Most got the attempt at humour whilst I did have someone come up to me worried that he didn’t have a garage. There are no plans to take any lockers away, don’t worry.
Saturday again saw the sun shine and 194 golfers played in President’s Day, by the time I had tee’d off there were 3 scores of 43 already in the box. That remained the case until the penultimate four ball, the big smile on Jon Owens face as he walked towards the fence on the 18th hole and mouthed the words ‘bandits’ indicated a good score but that was an understatement. Duncan Lendrum and Matt Dunn scoring 48 points – well done both!
Oh and you both have been ‘Dunn’ by the Match Captain what an appropriate name!
Thanks the President for a great day out, the Cornetto was a great touch walking up the 9th, is it me or are Cornetto’s getting smaller!
