                                         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

They should signal to the players following  to                                       pass and  should not continue their game until that group is out of range.

                   6.   “Through the Green ” , a player should ensure that any playing surface                                     they displace is repaired before moving on.
