UPDATED 8TH FEBRUARY 2017
For the purpose of course protection and due to the recent verti-draining works as detailed below, the Greens Committee have agreed motorised buggies will not be allowed on the Strand Course until ground conditions are suitable. It is envisaged the Course will be re-opened to buggies within two weeks, weather permitting.
Over recent weeks the fairways have been ‘Verti-Drained’. A process that uniformly raises the rootzone. This operation, encourages root growth and allows the movement of air, water and nutrient.
A consequence of this work is to leave the surface slightly soft until roots move back in and firm the rootzone. If heavy vehicles move over these raised areas while they are soft, ‘dents’ in the surface will result.
We shall be using set to cut at 10mm for fairways during the coming season. Mowers set at this height will ‘find out’ uneven surfaces and will be highlighted by TV cameras.
We shall endeavour to allow buggies on the Riverside Course whenever the weather allows. Your co-operation and understanding is greatly appreciated.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF MATS IS TO PROTECT OUR STRAND COURSE.
MATS ARE TO BE USED ON ALL FAIRWAYS, SEMI ROUGH AND PAR 3 TEES.
IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT ABOUT USING A MAT PLEASE CONSULT WITH YOUR PLAYING PARTNERS AND SEEK ADVICE AND AGREEMENT.
IF YOU ARE STILL IN ANY DOUBT PLEASE USE A MAT!!!
PLEASE ENSURE YOU ARE USING THE MATS AS RECOMMENDED IN THE NOTICE BELOW.
ONLY MATS ISSUED BY PGC ARE PERMITTED IN COMPETITIONS.
CUSTOMISED MATS ARE NOT PERMITTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
BREACH OF THIS RULE WILL RESULT IN A 2 SHOT PENALTY EACH TIME THE INFRINGEMENT OCCURS.
