Newsletter 16th of March
As you will no doubt have noticed, thhe SAU is currently still busy with utility works at Drohme Park.
Due to the bad weather last week we have had a few days delay and as a result some areas remain very muddy. The site manager is trying to get this situation back on track as soon as possible. However, it has been agreed that the work will be completed in the first week of April. As far as the final phase of the work on the golf course is concerned, I can inform you that it will start in the week of 20 March. The aim is to limit the work to a maximum of 6 weeks.
As a reminder, the schedule for this work is as follows:
- Planting new trees
- Renovation and construction of new bunkers.
- Enlargement of existing water obstacles
- Construction of new tee boxes.
We try to do the renovation in a way that causes as little disturbance to the players as possible, but it may happen that we have to close (partially) a hole. We ask for your understanding and patience: through our newsletter we will keep you regularly informed of the progress.
Competitions and Activities
Next Sunday will be the annual opening of the golf season. A 9-hole competition with a prize-giving ceremony at 7pm. We hope to see many of you in your renovated clubhouse.
On 25 and 26 March, there will also be a 9-hole competition on Sunday with prize-giving at 19:00. The following week, on the weekend of 2 and 3 April, the Tony Bacon Prize will be held. A 9 and 18 hole competition, with a prize giving at 7pm, followed by a festive drink to say farewell with style to Tony Bacon who is leaving us after 35 years of loyal service to enjoy his well deserved retirement.
For this special occasion, the new owner and his new team of the Clubhouse restaurant will present the following typical English dish:
Fish & Chips & Beer*
Price: 25 euros *
*Beer can be replaced by a soft drink.
Registration required via : BeGolf
As a reminder, members who want to contribute to the farewell gift for Tony can transfer their contribution to the following account number BDGC Asbl BE03 7360 3329 2484 mentioning “Gift Tony” + your first and last name.
