COURSE MAINTENANCE ( All )
Our club membership fees are kept to a very low level due to the
members themselves maintaining the course with only minimal
paid labour involved. Every member has the right and duty to help
keep the course in good playing condition. There are many light
but essential jobs that need doing every week throughout the year.
MEMBERS will be allocated certain fairways and may be asked to
work as a team for certain tasks. Please consult the secretary if you
have any problems with your appointed roster or you need a hand.
PLEASE DO YOUR BIT FOR YOUR CLUB
BUSY BEES are usually held just prior to major events to ensure
the course is presented in a manner of which we can be proud and
which will provide the fairest playing conditions. It is your right to
participate in these events. If you are healthy enough to play golf,
you are more than fit enough to take part in BUSY BEES. It is a
perfect opportunity to get to know other members and to be more
a part of your club.
These are noted in the fixture book , others will be announced
E-mails and phone calls will be used in conjunction with
announcements on game days to inform members of busy bees.
As a guide it is expected that 2 busy bees will be held prior to
season commencement, on Sundays. Other busy bees will be on
Sundays or during a playing month as required. The Saturday
before the Mens Open Day and prior to the Ladies Open day
