Latest Newsletter – November Edition

Since we last put pen to paper – we have had a lovely Autumn with some stunning weather. We are now preparing for colder days ahead. Winter can be a great time to play golf, with low sun casting long shadows and a quieter golf course. Please do remember to book your Tee slot even if it is quieter.

The greens maintenance programme was finished early October; we verti drained and disc seeded all greens. The germination has been successful and greens are in great condition for this time of year.

Winter Golf course improvement programme
———-
As some of you will have noticed Tom and his team have already started work on the course. We have 2 main projects that we will be working on:

**11th** – firstly we are rebuilding the men’s tee. This will mean that the tee will face the fairway rather than being at an angle. The new tee will encompass both the redundant lower tee and the current tee. Secondly, on the 11th fairway we will be putting a bunker on the left handside of the green. This will be dual purpose – protecting those on the 12th tee, while at the same time pushing people up the right hand side of the fairway.

**12th** – we are completely rebuilding the tee taking it further away from the 11th green in the interest of safety and most importantly increasing the size and levelling the tee. We hope on completion that we will have a tee that will measure close to 35 yards from front to back and all on one level thereby making it much easier to maintain, while also giving a better angle to attack the green. We will also be putting a few mounds to the left of the green with a view to stopping the ball running down towards the 13th tee.

The tees have moved forward to a temporary tee until the new tee is ready for play. The Out Of Bounds on the right of 12 has become a Lateral Water Hazard (red stakes). Behind the 11th green will remain Out Of Bounds.

We have already done quite a bit of work to improve the drainage, mainly 3,4, 7 and 13. Please bear with us and especially the greenkeepers while we try to continually improve the course.

What people are saying
A good golf club with wonderful views,
“excellent views and friendly service. After two false-starts under different ownership the existing owners have invested serious money to produce a very good challenging holiday golf course, an attractive and well-appointed clubhouse and restaurant with spectacular views. The venue was the centre for 80 friends attending a weekend of golf, tennis and boules competitions with dinner one night in the restaurant.”

Golf
“We were invited to play at The Point by some members. What a stunning golf course, and a lovely club house where we were given a friendly welcome. Some really interesting holes, and a proper golf course as we could take our dog! Freddie enjoyed his 18 holes, and we were accompanied by the owners spaniel for the first nine holes!”

Society Golf!
“Thank you so much for your organisation yesterday. Could you please also pass on our appreciation to everyone else involved in making our day so pleasant. We found all the staff very helpful, friendly and flexible and that really contributed to a very relaxed atmosphere. Could you also pass on Jeremy and Tom our plaudits for turning the course into such a well kept, vastly improved and cleverly designed one.”

Great day in The Point at Polzeath PGA West Pro Am
“By a country mile the best greens I have putted on this year. Congratulations to The Point at Polzeath for hosting a superb Pro Am this year, first class service, food and possibly the best greens of the year.”
