What are the game rules?

For an enjoyable game, we recommend groups are limited to a maximum of 4 per hole.

The objective of the game is to get the ball into each hole in as few strokes as possible.  Every stroke counts as a point on your scorecard.  The player with the fewest strokes at the end wins.

During busy times, we recommend players try to keep up with the group in front.

The holes are numbered from 1-9.  Follow them round to complete the game.

Players must play their first stroke from the red squares.

One Stroke Penalty if;

The ball goes off the fairway - replace it where it left.

The ball gets snagged in an obstacle - replace closest to the obstacle on the fairway.


With a beautiful weekend forecasted we asked the plant team to pick their favourite plant available right now, they felt it was like being asked to choose their favourite child…..but they did anyway!
Louise chose a hardy gerbera (but snuck in a Bella fuchsia as well when I wasn’t looking), Lorna chose a beautiful Lilac. Tam is obviously staying in with her amazing three stemmed orchid. Kaye, went for 2 hydrangeas and Elaine went big with her cercis tree.
They all look wonderful, and the plants don’t look bad either.
