Race to the Medallist Trophy!
There has already been a lot of talk over the NEW format to the Medallist Trophy and it starts this Saturday! Be sure to get yourself in as many medals as possible. The format has completely changed and we have introduced a points system based on your final position in each medal. This means we will have a running leader board all year which will result in the top 50 players qualifying for the very lucrative final event in October. For full details click here.
You may have noticed...changes to the fairways
The club are currently changing the shape of the fairways on the red, yellow and blue nines.
These courses, particularly the Red and Yellow, were constructed in a parkland environment and it is confirmed that some of these features have been lost. The position of the fairway tends to change over time and we feel now is a good time to realign them.
The key feature that we will be integrating is strategy which will involve the fairways becoming more defined, particularly on landing areas. Although some fairways will become smaller, there is no intention to penalise golfers. The semi rough will remain the same height as it is considered to be suitable for all golfers to play shots from.
