    Re: How's Your Course Holding Up?

    Mine's fine...
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    Job done

    Crazyface where are you playing in Cheshire?
    Although I'm in Cheshire I play in Leeks Staffs. It's only 12 miles and 20 mins away. Why?? When I joined 8 years ago there wasn't a place to touch it member wise and certainly green wise, we had the "best greens in Staffs". If it rained the course drained very quickly. The best drainage of late was when the river burst it's banks about July last year and cleaned the drains out (we all think) the course drained great for about 2 weeks, then the puddles came back and haven't really gone away. So not anymore I'm afraid. I am looking at Macclesfield, who have improved their course immensely over the last two years, and Styal, who have a cheap membership that includes monitoring your H/C for you and you pay a reduced fee for their comps.
    You should also consider Lymm. Easy to get to and a very good course always in decent nick.

    Re: How's Your Course Holding Up?

    Both courses I play at are in outstanding condition. Then again I chucked inland golf a good few years ago now as it's just not economical. I was paying horrendous money for 6-8 months golf per year maximum. On top of that I would regularly find myself paying on to links courses throughout the winter to get my golf fix.

    Sod that.

    Now play golf 12 months of the year on dry fairways and good fast running greens. Also don't come off with mud up to my knees.

    Mine is looking really good, very impressed with it.

    We haven't had disastrous weather yet in Herts though, but fingers crossed it holds up over the winter

    No issues for us either. Fairways are in great nick even with the rain we’ve had recently. All greens had maintenance performed on them recently, and they’re still running great. To be fair our greens are fantastic all year round.

    Re: How's Your Course Holding Up?

    They've punched a load of holes in the green before last weekend (dunno what you call that - looks like a ski slope) which slowed them right up. I'm sure there's a need for it though. Rest of the course is fine. It was open all of last winter (only closed when fog reduced visibility too much) so hopefully same again this year.

    We have just started a load of bunker remodelling on the front nine. Course is playing really well though. Not boggy at all and the greens are running really really well.
    spray it about a bit and can't putt 🇿🇦

    Re: How's Your Course Holding Up?

    Our clay based course is a little damp, doubt it’ll dry up now till next year. Still playable though and won’t go on to temp tees till November. Our other course is on Sand and dry all year.
