Firstly just an update on the total rainfall for 2012: we had 992mm, which is a record amount at Greetham Valley in the 18 years I have been keeping records, so let’s just keep our fingers crossed that it is not repeated through this year.
Well I hope you all had a good Christmas and were able to get out on the golf course for a few holes, at least it stayed relatively dry through the holiday period. There are still some very wet areas on the Valley course which is why there are buggy restrictions on there, but we are allowing buggies on the Lakes course.
We cut all areas of the course that we were able to get to last week, which has given me the feeling that spring is just around the corner, although there is now a total different feel this week, with snow now covering the courses! Hopefully it won’t hang around for too long to disrupt your golfing plans.
We have just about finished topping up the bunkers, but if you do come across one that has very little sand in then please let me or one of my staff know and we will replenish it.
Block paving has commenced and my aim is to complete around the putting green and then start the path leading up to the 10th green on the Lakes, this should keep us busy for several weeks once the snow has gone, but if we have time we will continue with more in other areas of the course.
Some of the benches have been brought in for refurbishment and will be returned as soon as possible.
Enjoy your golf in 2013!
