Month: April 2020


After many years of struggling along with our rough cutter, we have taken delivery of the new Toro 47000 rough mower, the timing could not have been better as the old mower finally packed up in recent weeks.
This new mower has 11’ (3.35m) width blades and can cut up to 10.6 acres per hour, this means we can now cut our rough-in 2.5 man-days as opposed to 7.5 man-days with the old machine.
A great step forward for our course, congratulations to the course committee and Carr Golf for the time spent investigating the various options and securing the machine.
We are all missing being out golfing and enjoying the wonderful surroundings of our course, see attached the photo of the Cherry Blossom in full bloom on the 8th fairway, hopefully,  it won’t be too long before we are out on the course again.

Keep Safe.


Committee of Management.
