After a very harsh Summer, the recent Autumn rains have been a godsend for the course.  With the cooler weather and moisture in the ground, it has been a very rapid growing season. Which has led to the rough growing quickly and densely.   Golf balls are easily lost in these areas – and we accept that this is slowing play down, as well as being extremely frustrating for players that find themselves searching for golf balls continually.  The initial rough cutting is underway, and this is at a slightly longer length than is normal – this is to enable the greens staff to mow the course quickly.  There will be a second cut underway in which the mower heights will be cut lower.  Another cut may be undertaken prior to the frosts – and the growth should slow dramatically once we get to the minus’.  We thank you for your patience
