WITHERNSEA GOLF CLUB
114 YEARS OF HISTORY
COURSE NEWS Remember This ?
It seems a lifetime ago and we are now playing on greens that are receiving praise from members and visitors alike. We are aware that they are not the quickest of greens but that will never be the case until we get a workable irrigation system installed. I am sure that you all realise that to cut the greens shorter in an attempt to speed them up will put them at risk with the ever drying wind that we have in Withernsea.
We now have a Greens Committee in place and they are working hard, with a number of volunteers, since Steve has decided to move on. We are actively working to increase our permanent workforce on the greens and I would ask you to show a little patience as we do that. The grass is growing at an alarming rate at this time of the year and so obviously much of the time is focused on that. An additional challenge is the breakdown of two of our biggest workhorses in terms of grass cutting but they should be back in action and a maintenance programme in place very soon.
