AUBURN (Rosnay)

A damp start with just enough drizzle to make a couple of holes miserable but thankfully not enough to ruin the day. The course was in very good condition and greens terrific with pin placement well back making it difficult for some this being the final round of the putting competition. Three players managed to score […] Read more »


                Weather good, turnout good, course good (ground hard – lack of rain), golf – lets say 29 points was popular. Still two managed to break par with 39 points and once again Nick coming to the fore, edging out Russell on a countback. Well done both. The […] Read more »


A glorious day with the promise of some good golf and a good turnout of all those dads who came out for Fathers Day. Unfortunately the greens were the spoiler proving treacherous for many with too few coming in under regulation. Hard to read and varying speed proved the undoing for many. Well done to our […] Read more »


Well our first time at the revamped Brighton Lakes course and it was a challenge. It looks nothing like the course we played back in the 1970’s when it was called New Brighton but it still has that difficult challenge about it. Testy par threes and long challenging par 4 and 5’s but no signature […] Read more »

Bardwell Valley

Always a difficult course. Short it may be but it has enough hurdles to make it a testing one as well. Today promised to be much the same as previous encounters due to the early and chilly start. From the first hole to the last putting became extremely difficult and frustrating with the greens slow […] Read more »

ROSNAY (Auburn)

Glorious weather, course in very good condition, what more could you want for an enjoyable game of golf. I suppose it helps if you have your game on but the social activity more than compensated for the poor shots that invariably hit those trees that kept getting in the way. Although the numbers were small, […] Read more »


A fantastic day for a game of golf. The course was in the best shape for some time with the greens in very good condition and most fairways green and grassy. Unfortunately after more than forty years of patronizing this venue we may have to rethink the viability of continuing to play here. The recent […] Read more »


A very good turnout. Ground still a bit wet from all the rain we have had in the past couple of weeks but all things considered, pretty good. The greens were as if the weather had been very good to them with all being deceptively quick. Most players struggled to hit their peak with very […] Read more »


A little damp underfoot but not too bad considering the downpours we had during the week. It is probably a testament to how hot and dry it had been leading up to the rain that it was in such good condition and not the predicted wet and boggy. Still, there was green on the fairways […] Read more »


Welcome to our first game of the year with a good turnout of 16 players. A glorious day to return to an old course that we haven’t played for over thirty years. Despite it alteration over that period it also seems to have more hills than I remembered or is it that maybe I am […] Read more »
