We have set up a new Twitter account for the Greenkeeping team at Burstwick. Follow us at @BCG_Greenies for updates on what's going on around the course, and what is planned for the future!
Blue Stakes on Holes 3-11
In the coming weeks we will be removing the blue stakes from holes 3 to 11, meaning that there will be no blue staked areas remaining at Burstwick! Many of these areas will still have individually staked trees (as with holes 1-2, 12-18) and players must take relief from these individually, rather than relief from the full copse. We are going to trim around the tree bottoms before we remove the stakes, so that players are able to find their golf balls (and we will be doing this on the other nine holes too, shortly after).
If you have any questions about this, such as how to take relief, please talk to a member of staff.
As many people know, we bought 4 new benches with the money raised from the Spring Open Am-Am. We have not had the conditions to put these out yet, as we are going to concrete a base for each bench and secure down. Hopefully we will be getting these out on the course in the next couple of months.
Whilst we're very happy with the progress we have achieved over the winter our attention now turns to maintaining the course through the summer and we are sure that in 2016 you will see the course in the best state it has ever been!
