The course is flooded and covered in debris and will be closed until further notice. Greenkeeper, Martin Boatswain, cannot get any machinery on the course today and if we get the forecast rain on the weekend then he may not get on till Tuesday or Wednesday next week.
We can help by doing some cleaning up probably Monday, so if anyone can get there it will be the start of the cleanup. Stacking and raking rubbish is probably the best thing we can do. If you are available please bring a rake and help out.
Again, the course is currently closed till further notice.
White Duck Day Postponed
