We finally have staffing in place to extend the opening times. Weekday opening is now from 10am until sunset. The staff not only look after the pro shop, they also maintain the grounds in quiet times.

We will be open from 5:30pm until susnset on weekdays. Weekend opening as always is from 10am until 6pm. The ground is still waterlogged on hole 1 and some of the holes on the long course, but most of the short course is OK. Obviously this will vary according to recent weather.
