Captains Log October 2017

November 2017

It has been a busy summer at Scarista and we are now winding down and looking forward to the winter course of 7(14) holes coming into play. 7 (14) holes does not seem like much but I promise you that on some days that is more than enough during the winter months here on Harris.

We have had record numbers of visitors playing the course this year which is in line with tourist numbers in Harris as a whole, the place was buzzing for much of the summer months. The usual mayhem ensued on the week beginning 7th August with our week of preparations followed by the life and Open Championships, full houses on all 3 days of competition and it weather was good, ok the weather may have been marginal!! A fantastic week which is so hugely important to the club.

For those who have played the course this year you will have seen the fantastic job that James, the greenkeeper, has been doing on the course. It has been presented in as good a condition as we have probably ever seen and with the new greens mower the greens have been fast and true. Jamess job has been challenging at times with the rabbits causing damage to fairways, greens and bunkers and of course the conditions that we were left with after last winter, most notably the 9th green which never really recovered from being buried under 3 feet of sand for 4 months. A massive thanks to James for his efforts.

The committee have been meeting as usual on a monthly basis to discuss issues and plan ahead. Discussions on removing the rabbit problem, re-aligning the 9th green so as to better protect it from the sand blow, build a new 1st green just beyond the current one are but a few things we are looking at together with all the other things that go into keeping the course going. As you will understand it is not always easy to do with a group of volunteers but we are blessed to have a strong and committed group of committee members (and non committee members) who have the best interests of the club and members firmly at heart. Onwards into the winter now, waterproofs on, woolly hat donned, who says its too windy? 40mph winds, just a breeze.

"... the course, clinging to the side of a hill which runs down to the Atlantic Ocean and Scarista Beach,
whose sands make Malibu look like a playschool sandpit" - Vic Robbie(Daily Mail)
