Pros news 

As the darker nights are now upon us, the golf season doesn't have to end. Here at St Annes Old Links we have one of the best courses for winter golf in the country. With our firm, dry fairways, fully playable greens, and not a mat in sight, links golf really does come into its own as inland courses start to get muddy and wet.

I started my golf on an inland course in the Midlands, and every weekend from October until March I would have to call to see if the course was open, and ask how many greens were temporary. If the course was open we would be losing plugged balls in the fairways, getting caked in mud, and had to carry our clubs as trolleys were not allowed.

Members here don't have to worry about any of those situations, whilst Greg and his team ensure that the course is kept immaculate and playable all year round.

Many non members read this newsletter, and I'm sure you will be pleased to hear that our winter green fee rate of £40 is now available!!

Shop news 

As the course remains open during the toughest of conditions, then we need to provide golf clothing and equipment to help you enjoy your winter golf. We have plenty of base layers, windtops, waterproofs and performance sweaters to keep you warm and dry whilst you play. The new Under Armour, Nike and Galvin Green ranges are proving very popular as the weather turns. All of these brands are promising performance and reliability, at a range of prices.

The hottest products currently are the Under Armour fleece, and the Nike Hyper Adapt waterproof jacket. 

Our members have enjoyed trying the new hyper adapt jacket on the golf course, and we have had plenty of great feedback about the product. 

If you take the trial jacket onto the course before the end of November, you will go into a draw to win a Nike golf shirt worth £50.

Ladies section 

Hi Dan, 

To end our season we had a Texas Scramble with 13 teams of 3. The weather was glorious and the scores reflected the great weather conditions. 

- 1st place with an amazing score of 68 was Barbara Cairns, Pat Vickers and Hazel Preston
- 2nd was Jennifer Barrow, Louise Clayden and Jackie Halstead with a score of 71. 

That's it for the season. 

Best wishes 


Club events 

Junior Halloween Party 

We hosted the junior Halloween party last night in the clubhouse at St Annes Old Links, which was great fun. 

Christine the junior organiser decorated the clubhouse brilliantly, and organised a superb buffet, whilst I ran some chipping and putting games. 

Shortly after the buffet we ran the annual apple bobbing comp which was won by one of the parents!

Greenkeepers news 

The winter programme is well under way at Old Links, with various projects taking place at different parts of the golf course. 

On the 17th, we have removed all the worn and bare turf at the start of the fairway, and replaced it with turf from our turf nursery. 

We have also rebuilt the bunker beside the practice tee. This has also been lowered in height to allow for mid-iron practice and will be open for play next year. 

Work has also begun on rebuilding the right-hand chipping green bunker. This bunker will also be lowered in height to allow players to get a better view of the chipping green from inside the bunker. 

We would ask that any areas that are marked with GUR such as newly built bunkers or newly turfed areas, are left undisturbed until they are open for play.
