Portsalon Notes – October 19th
From Monday 5th October we have introduced six-inch placing on the fairways and this will stay in place until the end of October.
From the first of November the competitions will become non-qualifying as we move to a shortened course and the fairways will be out of play. This year we have mats available and members will have the choice to use a mat on the fairway or take the ball to the side of the fairway and place the ball. This will give the fairways a chance to recover having had more than 15,000 rounds played since we re-opened in mid-May.
As the days get shorter when the clocks go back, there will be limited tee-time available so again it would be great if everyone would be mindful of their fellow golfers and avoid slow play. There should not be any gaps on the golf course with a full timesheet and if you cannot keep pace with the group in front, then you MUST call the group behind you through.
