Green Maintenance

We will be undertaking green maintenance on Wednesday 8th & Thursday 9th September. This will involve hollowing coring all 19 greens and then top dressing with sand. This is essential maintenance and unfortunately there is no way around this.
This will mean temporary greens will be in play on Wednesday & Thursday and potentially if it runs over then on Friday 10th also. This will affect the Wednesday 8th club competition so you may not want to run a qualifier that day. The full greens will be back in play on Saturday 11th as normal so there will be no effect to the weekend competitions.
I have put messages on the BRS timesheet for both days to inform all members that the course will be on temporary greens. The week before the maintenance I will also send out email messages to make all members aware. If the weather is not permitting and heavy rains come in, we will have to cancel the works if this is the case, I will make you aware straight away. But fingers crossed the sun will remain out.
If you have any questions, then please just get in touch.
Many Thanks
Allen Park

Barton Shield team Progress to Third Round

Our Barton Shield team, captained by Mark Moore, won away to Ballybofey/Stranorlar on Sunday 27th June.

Both pairs won their matches, so congratulations to Adrian Burns/Ewan Smillie and Paul Brammeld/Iain Ross.

The team are on their travels again to Gweedore in the 3rd round and we wish them good luck.


This Sunday, 4th July our Fred Perry and Irish Mixed teams are in action at Allen Park.  Good luck to both teams and I am sure they would welcome all the support they can get.

Clubhouse Notice Boards and Captain’s Day Update

Now that the Clubhouse is open again, members, old and new, should acquaint themselves with the various notices regarding Club Rules and Regulations, Fixture List, Inter-Club team information, WHS handicap conversion information etc. that can be found on the various notice boards.

We will still be sending out some information by email but will also post notices on the boards as we did pre Covid.

I would also remind members of the requirement of having played at least 4 qualifying competitions to take part in Captain’s Day.

14. To be eligible to play on Captain’s Day, Members must have returned a card from at least four handicap qualifying competitions prior to Captain’s Day.

To be eligible to play on President’s Day, Members must have returned a card from at least eight handicap qualifying competitions prior to President’s Day.

Also regarding Captain’s Day, members should ensure that they have ample funds in their competition accounts.

As previously mentioned the cost of the Captain’s Day competition will be £7.00 (this includes a complimentary burger at the 10th tee box. Other refreshments may also be available at the members own cost).

There will be a Starter, who will check off members before they go out to play and issue each member with a ticket that they must exchange for the burger.

It has also been decided that for this year, due to continuing Covid restrictions, the Prize presentations will take place the following Saturday (3rd July) at 4.00pm. Hopefully this will allow for a full turnout of prize winners.

Important Information to Members

After 2 weeks of trawling through ineligible cards without any detail of players names, dates, competition and handicaps written in, it is with regret that from this Saturday (15th), all incomplete cards without the correct information will result in the members being disqualified from the competition.
Any member who fails to return a score into the website before 9pm on the day of the competition, WILL be suspended the same day the following weekend. All scores must be returned whether completed or not.
Thanks to the members who actually did read Kenny Lee’s email on how to fill a card in correctly. It’s not complicated, so let’s get it right moving forward.
