3 Year Winter Maintenance Programme

Course pic 20150929Weather permitting, this season’s winter programme will keep Gary and the boys pretty busy.

Obviously this means there will be some disruption on the course, and we will do our utmost to keep this to a minimum. We’re sure everyone appreciates that it will be well worth it as the course continues to improve year on year.
