As you will be aware we have embarked on a review of our course management, working practices and standards in the wake of feedback from our members.

As part of that process we have held regular meetings with the green staff over the last 4 months and continue to work closely with them to find the best solution going forward.

The next phase was to seek an independent view of our processes and I’m pleased to announce the we have employed the services of well renowned Golf Course Consultant, Gordon Irvine to carry out a full course audit in the first instance which will be carried out in March

Gordon’s services include:-

•             Course Audit & Report

•             Strategy & Organisation

•             Management Program

•             Staff Development

•             Sustainability

•             Projects & Improvements

This detailed report will outline any changes/amendments and recommendations to assist us in improving the facilities we have. It will also include a specific plan moving forward aimed at improving any areas required step by step. We have been advised that this will obviously not happen overnight and I therefore ask for your patience while we work through this process.

The Greens Committee strongly believe that this is a vital project and will undoubtedly greatly improve our course and hope that you will support us going forward
