As a consequence of the recent heavy rains and for the protection of the grounds the Course Manager has requested that unless absolutely necessary, motor trolleys should NOT be used on the course.
We are endeavouring to keep the course open for play as much as possible and without this course of action, the course may have to be closed, to protect the surfaces for future play. Your co-operation and understanding of this situation is appreciated.
The coming week is looking to be relatively dry so, hopefully, if ground conditions continue to improve motor trolleys can be again be used more widely.
Notices will be posted on the First Tee indicating any specific holes which will be out of play while conditions remain poor. (see image below) In the meantime please follow any roped off areas to protect the surfaces around the golf course and your own safe passage.
Confirmation once again that a combination of an influx of funds from the Watson Foundation and Club Development Fund means that the club is in a position to improve practice facilities in an extended Pro Shop facility, providing a new disabled lift installation from the lobby to the Pay Phone box, which has been a redundant space for many years, and investment in Course facilities over the Winter Months so that at the start of the 2017 Summer Season we have a fantastic facility, inside and out at Douglas Park.
Please help to spread the word.
