Many members will believe the 'start of the season' is when The Masters takes place but no…the season opener is the April Medal at York GC!
180 competitors took part on Saturday and discovered the course was a little longer with the white tees coming out of hibernation.
Many congratulations to Stan Rogers on winning the medal with his fantastic score of net 64. Also congratulations to Ryan Duiga shooting a super gross 68.
Hole in One
Congratulations to Jim Downes on achieving a hole-in-one on the 2nd recently.
Don't forgot one of the prizes on our Professional day later this month is a car for the first hole-in-one on the 17th !!
It's been a busy past few days working on the course too. There have been many members kindly helping our Greenstaff with various jobs.
On Tuesday volunteers started planting the thousands of heather plants which have been produced from the seeds collected by Paul Yates last year. By the end of Tuesday nearly 5000 had been planted!
This work will look stunning when it comes into fruition and helps continue the great work being done on the Course Development Programme.
Could members please take great care if retrieving any golf balls from these areas over the coming weeks, thank you.
We have many promotions running in the pro shop to help you get ready for the weeks ahead.
