Members and green fee players are advised that Trentham will be coring and sanding greens on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th November. This is after the Trentham Plate on Sunday 17th November.
The course will be closed on these two days to allow the work to be undertaken. We apologise for the inconvenience to players, but coring is necessary for long-term green health. We are proud of the excellent quality of our greens, among the best in country Victoria, and good maintenance is the key to them remaining that way.
The competition on Thursday 21st November will be held as usual, and if previous years are any guide, within a week or two the greens should be well recovered.
