Greens Staff at work.

The Course has been in fantastic condition over the past few weeks and has been well presented for members and visitors at the Open Week and the KGC Classic.

A lot of hard work goes into ensuring that the course can be 'enjoyed' (if that's what's supposed to happen in golf!!!) and thanks are due to all concerned with the upkeep of the course and greens.

Pictured below are some of the workers who were out on the course in the early hours of Monday morning.

'Birdie' at 6th!

Early morning starters for the Shoreline Coaches sponsored stroke competition on the 10th of July were searching for birdies and eagles, but a different feathered kind was stalking the 6th fairway. While walking over the crest of the hill, Robert Massey (the eventual winner of the competition with a net 68) spied a buzzard just on the ground in front of him. It quickly wheeled up into a nearby tree and viewed the goings-on below with a beady eye.

The following morning, the predator was there again, this time chasing small birds above the fairway. He stopped high on the branches of a tree to let the 'golfers' through and then continued on his quest.

He was about 18 inches in height with a wingspan of approximately 36 inches.
