Accrington & District Golf Club

Greens Update

Following on from the last football themed email regarding the East Lancs Derby & the Rovers somehow forgetting to turn up, (oh we got mullered).... I'm sure everyone is enthralled with the World Cup currently taking place in Qatar, with or without one love armbands.

This month so far, we have had just 4 dry days in a row, it's been awful,  if Accy was a race course the going would be classed as Heavy, & soft in places, although recently out on the course the Golfmates (usually found on Social Media) visited A&DGC and uploaded a video including drone footage of the course, ...and he lost a ball!... the links attached below, if you want to give it a watch. It gave great views and reviews of the of our club.

Our Green Staff are out on the course trying to battle the elements as best they can (add in staff on leave) and it's been a struggle, but they are carrying on with the maintenance across the course, Leaf / pine needle clearance is time consuming as you may notice these on the course & greens, so please bear this in mind as you play. The weather really hasn't helped this week with the course being closed on Wednesday. But it's open today & the weekend (hopefully) for the winter league. 

Also a polite reminder to repair plug marks / pitch marks etc, it really does help, and bin any litter.

Wrap up warm it's chilly out there.
