New Timetable for Bookings effective Immediately

Course Upgrade - Laying of Irrigation Pipes

The Club has been provided with a timetable for the laying of irrigation pipes on the golf course. Work is currently underway on the 5th and 6th holes which will be followed by the 7th and 8th holes. This is scheduled to occur within the next fortnight however we will only be give 48 hours notice prior to 7th and 8th holes becoming unavailable. This will impact the number of tee times available.

During this period we will be playing competitions on the following holes:

Hole 
1 2 11 16 17a 17b 18  10 9   x2
 Par 4 3 3 3 4 3 3 4 4  62

The par for this course will be 62 and we will not be sending results through to Golflink so your handicap will not be affected. We have considered using the 5th and 6th holes however the time it takes to walk to and from these holes makes it impracticable.

Booking Tee Times During this Period

The above configuration will mean less tee time slots (around 52) will be available in the early session which will be from 6.15am to 7.45am. On a positive note we will be able to move the beginning of the second time slot from 11.00am to 9.30. 

As we will only have 48 hours notice on the availability of holes, we would like to avoid the situation where members have their tee times changed or cancelled. During this phase you will only be able to book a tee time 2 days prior to competition. This should allow us to know what holes can be used and we can adjust the tee times available to reflect the course.

 For competitions occurring after Monday 26th August all bookings are to be made by phone as follows:-

  • Saturdays - Book in the preceding Thursday
  • Tuesdays - Book in the preceding Monday
  • Thursdays - Book in the preceding Tuesday
  • Fridays - Book in the preceding Wednesday

Bookings will not be accepted prior to 8:00 am on any day.

During the next few months the following conditions will apply when booking tee times:
  • No visitors will be allowed except in the afternoon sessions if spots are available.
  • If a member pulls out, they cannot be replaced with a visitor even if the visitor turns up on the day.
  • Your booking will not be accepted if you are not a player in that group.
Thank you for your patience during the upgrade and we know we will have a great golf course when it's all finished.
