At this point.....I'm all for artificial grass over the whole dang course......oh, and the floodlights as well
No brainer for a 12 month playable course in the uk.Floodlights 😳. Love that idea. I know it happens abroad in some places, sounds a lot of fun. That's big thinking 👍
Anyone caught using a range ball on the course is shot at dawn
we dont see it because it goes to the hotel/resort. We get tons of visitors, golf days etc on top of 900+ members. The % that goes back to the course is minimal.But do you know how much revenue the course generates?
Resort courses typically do not make much money from the golf, the course often exists to attract people to stay and spend loads in the hotel on food and drinks.
Install an escalator at the 9th...
Apparently it dosnt happen very often ,unless it happens to you.After this morning .......Hang, draw and quarter anyone who doesn't replace a divot.....
Our 17th hole had a big improvement plan as per a consult with McKenzie & Ebert. The proposal was to move the green left and back so that when standing on the green you have a panoramic view of the 9th hole which is down in the valley. This appears to have been shelved. Of all the recommendations in the report, this was the one that I was the most excited for. It was due in the 10 year plan for this year.

Having only played your course once, so take what I say with a large pinch of salt, but I would be loathe to see MacKenzie and Ebert anywhere near a place so beautiful, with such diverse golf holes..
I’m guessing their huge signature waste-areas and giant blown-out bunkers were in the plans?
My last club....you had a choice during the winter.....play off a fairway mat, or take a bag of sand with you. Fairway mat= no divot. Divot...fill it with sand....and holy cow...the divot is filled.What happens if an un-seen crow pecks over the said divot
Some clubs in the North East (I suspect it is the same elsewhere) don't do daily website/Facebook updates on course conditions which in weather like this is infuriating. How many Temporary Greens are there etc to allow non-members to decide whether its worth going.More comms from the Club
