Email problems

It has just come to light that there has been a problem with us receiving emails. Unfortunately we have not received emails sent to the previous email address on the Contact Us page. I have now updated this with the following address; porterswood[at]googlemail.com

This will hopefully eliminate the problem. In the meantime I would like to apologise to anybody that has sent us email and obviously not received a reply!

“Best greens in the area!”

p6300346I have been hearing that phrase regularly over the last few weeks, and whilst I don’t know about that, I do know that we are working extremely hard to keep the greens looking green and playing great. They are still receptive to a good tee shot. This photo was taken this morning 30th June 2018.

Evening golf!

There is now time to squeeze 9 holes in after work as the last tee off time has been moved back to 7pm.

It is preferred lies everywhere as it is still a little soft underfoot and we are still using the winter mats to tee off on the par 3’s. The greens are in great condition for the time of year.

After periods of heavy rainfall please ring the clubhouse to check we are open on 01942 214777.
