The new 9th Green comes into play on Sunday September 1. Golfers will have to work out where to hit their tee shots to leave the best chance of hitting close to the flag on the wellguarded, enormous green. The green and surrounding area is looking marvellous.

The Eric Dohnt Trophy winner was decided on Wednesday. Congratulations to Bernie Ryan who came from behind to win by 6 after a fine, final round score of 39. The best 7 scores were taken from the possible 12 rounds during the year.
