The greens staff at Bangor GC were rightly congratulated for their presentation of our course throughout the last golfing season, and under terrible conditions they have done their best to keep the course afloat in recent months. Members may have seen the recent videos of the work Iain Harrison and his team have undertaken on the course over the recent winter period, and we look forward to enjoying the fruits of their labour as the season gets underway.
It is alarming, however, to note that many golfers can seemingly neglect to repair their pitch marks, particularly since successfully repaired pitch marks can heal almost seamlessly within 48 hours, while an unrepaired or half-hearted attempt can take weeks, or at this time of year months, to recover. Whilst the greens have now been tined and dressed, this does not lessen the responsibility on us all to ensure that Iain’s team’s hard work in preparing the surfaces is set back by the scourge of unrepaired pitch-marks!
It’s our obligation to take care of the golf course we are privileged to play. We hope every member can take the time to fix their own pitch-marks and any others they come across to ensure that our putting surfaces continue to be presented in the quality we have come to expect at Bangor Golf Club. We have had an unwelcome forced break from golf over the winter, so lets make a point of starting back the way we mean to continue – fixing pitch marks, replacing divots, raking bunkers, respecting the course and our fellow members!
Our Course Manager explains the issues with Pitch Marks –
We are delighted to inform you that at the Club’s A.G.M. on Monday 7th March, Mr. Seamus Bowler was installed as Captain for 2016; Mr Graham Yarr as Vice-Captain, Mrs. Grace Cuming as Lady Captain and Mrs. Joan Jamison as Lady Vice-Captain.
I’m sure I Speak for us all in wishing them well in their term of office.
