Autumn at Rusper


What a fantastic day Captains Day was! Thank you all for supporting Dave and his chosen charity, one that is obviously close to all our hearts as it looks as though we will be nearing £4500 raised for Cancer Research UK! I will let you know the final figure when everything is in. It was great to get such positive feedback on the course and our thanks must go to Grant and his team once again for presenting the course in such superb condition.

We have purchased a mole plough but, at the moment, ground conditions are preventing us from using it! As soon as the ground softens up a bit we will be trying it out! Verti-draining will take place again this year which will further improve the drainage and hopefully the winter will be kind so you can have a further 6 months uninterrupted golf!

The leaf fall will be upon us soon, we are now better placed with machinery to deal with this but there is 210 acres out there so the green keepers will not be able to clear it all over night, please be patient, they will endeavor to keep the fairways clear as a matter of priority so as not to disrupt your game.

I know many of you have met Lee Wilson, the new head coach at Rusper and those of you who have had lessons with him have come back with good reports. Please support him, he has a lot planned for us over the coming months. You will often find him in the clubhouse so go and introduce yourself and have a chat.

The driving range will now be closed on a Tuesday afternoon until 7.30 Wednesday morning for ball collection and grass cutting, we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but feel it is better to have a set time so everyone knows!

Thomas has returned home for the winter, we wish him well, I know his family will be pleased to see him home and we look forward to seeing him again next year.

Quiz nights are back for the winter, first Friday of the month, £10 per head which includes your supper. Support us if you can!
