It looks as if there are going to be a few Grumpies out playing today – there are a number of black clouds around but they seem to be bypassing us so hopefully they will manage to stay dry.
With regards to the course we have received a number of complaints about divots not being replaced and pitchmarks not being repaired. Can I please remind you that it is every players responsibility to replace divots and repair pitchmarks and, whilst I’m on the subject, it is also your responsibility to rake the bunker after you have been in it. I realise that it is not only members failing to do these things but every divot replaced and every pitchmark repaired helps to maintain the course to a high standard. Here endeth the lesson!!!!
On Monday 1st August we have a group of ladies from the South Island coming to play and we are in need of trundlers, so if you have a spare trundler or are happy to lend yours for the day please let me know as soon as possible.
On to results from last week: Grumpies didn’t play last week and neither did the Ladies on Wednesday.

That’s it for this week – short and sweet.
