Mount Pleasant Golf Club is pleased to offer a very attractive nine-hole golf course, featuring 18 different tees and stretching across approximately 70 acres. From the white tees, our course measures nearly 6,200 yards, with a par of 70.
Juniors and students with a valid student card pay a reduced green fee. There are also reductions at certain times for seniors older than 65. Please do not hesitate to get in touch, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01462 850999.
This July the course was '25 years old' and it was interesting to look at the now and then photographs and how much the course has changed and developed over the years. In May this year, we expanded our Greens Team and recruited a Head Greenkeeper. The impact of this is has been significant and we continue to receive extremely positive comments on the course, the speed of greens in particular.
We continue to operate a sustainable approach to greenkeeping, with very positive results. Our compost tea program for greens and tees helps to increase the beneficial soil bacteria and our sustainable greenkeeping covers other areas of the course, not just the greens.
All fertiliser inputs are kept to a minimum to achieve good grass growth and chemical applications have been reduced in the last few years, this is something the Greens Team are very proud of.
I would like to ask Members and Visitors to be aware of any temporary local rules posted in the clubhouse and Pro-Shop as these usually relate to areas of the course that need protecting, especially from November through to April (winter rules).
It would also be appreciated if all golfers could set the best example concerning etiquette both on and off the course.
Our bird project now has over 40 bird boxes on the course, which produce great results each year. Along with the log pile houses in the plantations to encourage insects and small mammals into these areas, we are seeing good results for the wildlife projects.
Work on the 9 hole extension began in the spring of this year and we will keep you up to date with the progress. Keep an eye on our News items and Facebook for the latest updates.
