What a glorious few days! It's been great to see so many people taking advantage of the beautiful weather even though we cannot pick the range balls up quickly enough!
On a more serious note regarding range balls, we have just taken delivery of 120 dozen Srixon balls to mix in with existing stock and replace the "old" or cracked ones. At a cost of 38p per ball we are hoping you will be aiming at one of the new markers and hitting your target
Our new "handy man" Tony Thompson has hit the ground running since starting and he has done a superb job of making frames and installing the new yardage markers. Thank you Tony on behalf of our numerous "range snipers". This week has also seen work begin on getting a water supply to the practice green on the range which is great news. Having no water has been the main obstacle in being able to achieve a "proper" green and with this now being sorted we are moving much closer to providing this goal.
The grass tee area on the range has been opened this week and if everyone hitting shots up the range can play from either the all-weather tee or the marked grass areas this would be greatly appreciated. Due to the amount of use the grass area will receive over the coming months two things will really help the quality of the area and the amount of time it can be used:
After finishing runners up by the narrowest of margins in last year's league our juniors played their match this year against Malton determined to get off to a good start. Under the leadership of our new junior Captain Emma Audsley they did just that and started their campaign with a win.
Whilst I am sure we would disagree that golf is a good walk spoilt, I am sure we would agree with saying it should be a comfortable walk! We have what is probably the best selection of shoes for Men and Ladies in the area, and whilst you often hear about improvements in club design there has also been huge advancement is shoe design and comfort. Why not call in and try the hugely popular SPIKELESS shoes for example?

This week the course has seen some great golfing weather but very cold temperatures in the night. With a frost present on most mornings the grass still isn't at full growth. Despite the cold night time temperatures, we have still needed to use the irrigation this week due to dry conditions.
The old bunkers have had a face lift this week as a new crisp clean edge has been cut which has got them looking great for the summer. Sand has also been moved around in the bunkers to make sure it's distributed evenly. Sand has been added if necessary, but the minimum amount to reduce the risk of plugged lies.
