In order to protect the course during the remaining winter period, the greens committee would encourage members and visitors, where possible, to carry their clubs.
If anyone requires the use of a powered trolley; they must use proprietary winter wheels or a conversion kit, all of which are available from the Pro shop. Both powered trolleys, equipped with winter wheels, and pull trolleys are available to hire.
Please note: Pneumatic wheels are not considered a suitable alternative.
Push and Pull trolleys are not subject to these restrictions.
Please contact the Pro shop, 01530 414820, with regard to the specific wheel requirements and replacement options.
