They have a lot of Americans visit that have been to Dornoch.

Nice course that’s as rustic as you can get.

Shame but they will really be hit hard this year.
If they have not built up a great reserve of cash they are poorly managed in my opinion.

I just don't understand how Brora can be less than a week into lockdown which is incidentally in the low season and claim to have a cash flow problem???

I don't get that and suspect lazy journalism/twist on words scenario.

Oh right.

Surprised it was refused considering how much money that they generate for the local community
theres a road running right in front of where they want to put it, the club have had plenty of chances to do something about that over the years now that road is well used. poor management, just like the 1/4 million they wasted on a plan for a practice area, that was also refused, this time by the members

I saw the proposed plans when I was up there in August and they looked fantastic. The old clubhouse is looking very tired. Pity that they couldn’t sort out that road.

Just been up to the course to recover something and seen a guy in the car park with his clubs out, return home to read apparently 3 guys were heading up the first not long after I'd been up. I suspect the powers that be will be on to them.

Here there & everywhere...
Nope, not even any greens staff, which has raised a few eyebrows.
So how will the powers that be know about them?

Personally I’d think nothing about reporting them to the police, if necessary, as the more people find out that their courses are deserted and people are sneaking out and on them, it will just escalate!

Examples need to made of them imo.

At the moment our greens team are still working on the course, cutting the grass, fertilising.
I was thinking, providing it's still in business after all this, the course is going to look absolutely magnificent!
No divots, pitchmarks, scrapes, buggy trails.
Well we have to look for some silver linings. :whistle:
