Weekly Golf Report
Captain's Report - August 2017
East Fairway Bunkers
The Match Committee put a new motion to the most recent Greens Committee meeting asking for the fairway bunkers on the par 5’s be lowered by the end of 2018 and the par 4 fairway bunkers be lowered by the end of 2019, as per the Course Development Plan. This was seconded by the Ladies Captain, voted on and passed.
Andrew Johnson has come up with 2 possible strategies with the Greens. He is currently costing the proposals and hopes to take it to the Board shortly. The greens are being rolled 2-3 times each week and are rolling well.
Men’s and Ladies Match asked the Greens Committee about introducing a free drop from ALL PLANTS under 2 club lengths. Greens Committee requested the Men’s Match Committee discuss this further as they felt it would change the integrity of the course. Men’s Match will suggest it should be free relief from trees under 2 club lengths in height.
With the irrigation works on the West course and recent rain there is a local rule in place for both courses at present where you can mark, lift, clean and replace your ball, through the green, if it has mud on it. (Not hazards). The ball must be put back in the same place as it was lifted from. You also receive relief from the irrigation works – nearest point of relief and one club length. You also get relief from the dirt and tile mounds on the right hand side of the 13th West. The groundstaff are thinning out plants on 16 West and clearing under trees.
PLEASE think of your fellow golfers and rake the bunkers and put the rakes in the middle of the bunkers parallel to the fairways. It has been an issue in the past month.
PLEASE be aware of where you are in relation to others in the field and “stay behind the group in front of you – not in front of the group behind you”!!! A couple of suggestions to improve pace of play is to play “ready golf” which includes no honours on the tees and getting the shorter hitters to go first. If time is a real issue, after putting out go to the next tee.
