Starting the new decade how we mean to go on - no more plastic tees

no plastic tees from 010120
The Committee have agreed that from 01012020 plastic tees will not be allowed on the golf course.We have all seen golf tees lying around the course, both wooden and plastic. The simple fact is that plastic tees are more likely to harm the birds and animals we share our wonderful course with. The greenkeepers will also tell you that they can do a great deal more harm to their equipment than a wooden tee.So from the start of the new decade we would like all golfers to only use wooden tees and the ...
