A Big Thanks 

Kevin, our groundsman, would like to thank the 11 volunteers who helped to micro-tine,

re-seed and top dress all the greens on Saturday Sept 9th.

A total of 20Kg of grass seed and 2 tonnes of top dressing were spread over a 5 hour

sunny period which was followed by heavy rain that washed the seed and nutrients 

into the surface. New flags were fitted and some new pin positions were also located.

  It was encouraging to see a good response for the working party which helps to keep

the course looking good and membership fees down.

  Thank you once again to Ken, Scott, Tony, Dermot, Dennis, Dave, Geoff, Phil, Paul,

Mike (E) and Mike (J).

On Tuesday 13th June from 09:00 the greens will be micro-tined.

We are looking for volunteers that can spare 3 to 4 hours to assist.

This will result in the need for the "cores" to be removed from the greens, followed by re-seeding and top dressing.

If you have any time to spare on the day, even a couple of hours, all help would be greatly appreciated. A wide shovel, such a snow shovel would be useful.

Due to the work being carried out, the course will be closed for the day.

If you can spare anytime, can you please contact Paul Wake so he can have an idea or resources on: 07899000520 or email [email protected]ail.com 

Thanks

New Pond at Town Meadow

Through the winter your committee was busy planning improvements to the course.

Throughout the month of April, several members gave up significant amounts of their free time to bring the plans for a large pond to fruition. The pond is situated at the intersection of the 1st, 3rd and 7th holes with the ability to catch errant shots on all three.

Many thanks to all those members who gave up their time, within a small club it is the commitment of the members which makes Town Meadow such a special place.

Ashbury Weekend

The Ashbury weekend was a successful if damp affair.

Our captains, Kim Tierney and Angela Martin, set the tone of the weekend when presenting everybody with a welcome back on arrival and an enjoyable weekend was had by all.

The singles stapleford on day 1 and the betterball pairs on day 2 were both halved leaving everything riding on the matchplay singles on the final day. However, such was the downpour the decision was made to abandon the final day competition to enable everyone to take shelter. As such the Meadow Cup was for the second year a tie.

Hopefully one of next years captain's, Mike England or Danny Wiltshire, will emerge victorious to claim the Meadow Cup outright for the first time.

Club Competitions for 2017

There are sheets within the hut to sign up for both the individual summer knockout and the summers Kings Trophy pairs competition.

Sign up will continue until the Club Championship on the 25th June, when the draws will be made.
