Weather Update

As I'm sure our members will have noticed, it has been quite a rough few days! Storm Imogen has caused disruption across the Channel Islands and we have not been spared. Fortunately damage has been kept to a minimum on the course however the 15th hole bore the brunt of the storm with two pine trees situated at the back of the green, a hawthorn at the tees and also the flag stick all being damaged. Now that the high winds have passed the clean up operation can begin with these damaged trees being the first to be cleared this morning.

With wind speeds up to 75mph recorded in the island it is no surprise that we lost some trees however we believe that we got away lightly considering.
