Winter Maintenance The club does not have a policy of using temporary greens or artificial tees on the Codrington course. Some artificial tees may be used on the Stranahan course due to some tees being in shade.
Fairways: Preferred Lies in Operation on both courses throughout the winter months the fairways will be constantly aerated as conditions allow. Fairway mats may be used. At some holes the golfer is asked to take the ball to the wings of the fairway to lessen the wear but it is not mandatory. Please repair your pitchmark and one other on the greens, smooth your footprints in the bunkers and replace your divots and press them in firmly.
Current Maintenance April – September. Verti-cutting of fairways. Sand top dressings every 3-4 weeks on both courses (smooths surface within 1 hour of drying)
