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.
