At Present the course is open, with 18 main greens. NO BUGGIES allowed.
There are still a few areas of snow where it has drifted but they are expected to disappear quickly. The course is open for play this morning but 18 temporary greens and no buggies allowed.
Sunday 4th March 14.15 This mornings inspection revealed a lot of snow is still lying on the course although the thaw is clearing a lot of areas. Whilst it is not anticipated at this stage that the course will be open for play tomorrow (Monday 5th), an inspection will be carried at 7am by Gareth and the greens staff to make a final decision. A further update will be posted on the website home page as soon after 7am as is possible. Given the weather forecast for Tuesday & Wednesday, it is looking promising for later in the week.
The harsh weather conditions and deep lying snow currently being experienced mean that the golf course is highly likely to remain closed over the weekend period and maybe on into the early part of next week. Course inspections will be carried out on a regular basis and the club website will be updated as and when the situation improves, please click on this link to the website for information - https://www.stokerochfordgolfclub.co.uk/course-conditions
