You have informed me, by letter, that the old 6th tee is to re open as OMBC said that they saw no reason not to. Well back in 2015 you said that it was not safe,legally. You must have looked at the risk back then as you said it was a health and saftey risk and a legal risk. Have you looked again and done a new risk assesment? OMBC have no interest in any claims that will arise from damage to property or people. Your Insurance company do, contact them and ask them, if they say it is fine then go ahead. If you are to open the old tee the minimum you should do is erect a deflection net. If you do nothing, and people and or property are hurt or damaged, then you are placing your members and the golf club liable. You said as much in 2015. You can not simply rely on OMBC to let you off the hook if damage is done, we are all responsible for our own golf ball not OMBC. You have messed about for the last two years, get this risk eliminated and let's get on.

To Karen. Brilliant service on two pairs of faulty shoes over the last 12 months. No messing about she contacted Adidas and replacement shoes delivered the same week. Thanks again.

Can the greens chair ask our course manager why he leaves the length of the greens so long for so long. Been a member here for years and as far as I can remember it's groundhog day every year about this time. Greens are slow and the grass is long. Now this would be totally acceptable if we had had really good greens over the years but, I can only remember a handful of years where the greens were as good as the other local courses. One of the best was when Steve Pickering used the new machine, the greens were good through the winter as well that year. Why does our course manger insist on repeating, what looks like, bad practice. Please can you enlighten us Mr. Greens Chair.

Just thought I'd let you know that visitors are not looking for the temporary tee on the sixth. They are wondering about a bit and either playing off the ladies tee or the old, and now, dangerous 6th tee. Maybe a sign would help. Also there are now two large holes in the fence at the back of the 3rd. Kids on the 3rd green with bikes Saturday night, made there entrance and exit through the holes in the fence.

Awful really this weekend. Long grass on the tee's greens full of dents and bobbles. Massive holes in the fences that border the course. Back of the 3rd and all along the13th. Massive holes in the fencing back of the 3rd and all along the 13th. These have been there all winter. Then there the infamous 6th tee. We are pushing our member away with this setup. Very uncomfortable watching board members getting stick yesterday. Keith

Could we possibly trial crinkle cut crisps in the bar and, an alternative nut selection. Maybe Nobby's nuts for example.

I think that there are a few internal out of bounds that are unfair. The fourth between the third and fourth fairway, the section with the gully drain, from the telegraph pole to the practice green. If this section were to lateral red stakes then it would speed play up and make it a fair hazard. Also the 8th fairway up the right, a lateral red stake would speed up play. The 8th over the bridge on the left, not sure why this OB as the river forms a lateral water hazard. The 15th, again the river forms a lateral water hazard, the section down the hill on the right. The 10th between the first tee and 10th fairway, this has a gully drain.
