Spraying the Greens on Thursday 19.04.18

Just FYI…

We are spraying the greens with a spring fertiliser and a final fusarium treatment (ahead of the growing season) on Thursday 18th at 9am. It is not harmful to play on the greens immediately after but we are informing you as a courtesy. This will increase the strength of the grass and its resilience to higher wear patterns and lower cuts

The cutting height of the mowers will be lowered this Saturday which will speed up the greens significantly.

The following week we will be:

1) Aerating the greens
2) Spraying the fairways with broad leaf / daisy killer

PRGC Beat Weston Turville – It’s 2 from 2 in the CBL!!

We had a big win today versus Weston Turville.  We welcome a great many players from Weston Turville over the winter months and they are always very welcome guests.  They were particularly complimentary about our course and our hospitality - a massive well done to the Clubhouse and Greenkeeping teams.  This makes us two from two this year in the CBL, but our next two matches are both away to Mill Green and then Richings Park so that will be tough. All the team played well and are in good spirits.

New Signage to Stop Freeloaders

Please excuse the new signage - we have had an incident where people have tried to play the course without paying and we have put in place a checking mechanism to prevent it happening again.

 

CBL Season Starts with a Victory Over Newcomers “Three Locks”

Huge win last week over newcomers “Three Locks” in a marathon contest. Well done to all!! Can we repeat the job on Western Turville on the 14th? Many of them have been playing our course recently as theirs is closed due to the weather so home advantage has been diminished – Come on PRGC!!

Great Customer Service Nick!

"Dear Mr Shaw,
This is just a short note to thank you for last Wednesday. The get together for the late Mrs Finch was just perfect. The food was 1st class. Thank you and your team for the kindness shown.

Kind Regards
Pauline"

Amazing Away Performance in the Hillman Trophy 25.03.18

Whilst we lost in a nail biting 4:3 cliff hanger, this is an amazing away performance (as winning away is as rare as hen’s teeth). Even more heart breaking as our three losses were 2 down, 1 down and 2&1. We had two 5&4 wins (Dean and John) and two halved matches, Gavin and Pete Major. Could have gone either way with a bit of luck. Their course was not in great nick as it was very wet, some temporary greens and they had also hollow tined and sanded the main greens that were in use!!

We now move into the Hillman Plate which is the parallel competition for first round losing teams. This competition is as hard fought as the main Trophy. Hopefully we will get a home draw this time and get them on our greens!!
