Spring Treatment (Greens)

Golf operations would like to advise all members and guests of the decision to go ahead with spring treatment on the following dates.

Beachwood will be hollow tined on the 25th of September and DCC will be treated on the 13th November. We appreciate the support and patience from the members over this time. It is absolutely crucial that we treat the current state of the greens at Beachwood with the utmost urgency. We are confident that with the growing season upon us and good rains forecast for the coming weeks we will see the Beachwood greens in a far healthier condition and back to a standard expected by all our members.
