Golfers returning to Louth GC this week would have noticed a few changes... as the club wasn’t wasting any time during lockdown.
A raft of property and course related improvements have been undertaken since early January.
The greens team, working under BIGGA Covid guidance, have been busy improving bunkers, removing trees, over-seeding all greens and carrying out other work ahead of the return to play.
Head greenkeeper Sean McDonnell said: “The year-on-year improvement in our greens is significant.”
Alsom, premises have been deep cleaned, changing rooms repainted, gutters cleared out.
A repairs and improvements project under the guidance of health and safety expert Pete Wilson has been executed and, whilst this remains work in progress, the work already done will not only bring cosmetic changes for the better but a much safer golf experience for all.
Louth GC have also announced a new partnership with Pete and Annerley Owen of Applebys Ice Cream.
Pete and Annerley have signed a contract to provide full bar and catering services at the clubs as franchisees and to complement their Conisholme business.
Director of bar and catering Guy Shufflebotham said: “Commencing Monday, April 12, Applebys will take over the running of our newly-extended halfway house and from there they will welcome golfers and non-golfing visitors to our club in accordance with the rule of six.”
The clubhouse is planned to open on May 17, again in line with government.
