To enable us to protect our fairways we have introduced the compulsory use of winter wheels and mats in the winter months once ground conditions dictate. By regularly using winter wheels and mats, we believe that this enables the course to be maintained in a better condition which will benefit all players.
The winter wheels will give golfers extra grip and control when negotiating the course and should cause less damage to the playing surfaces. Our aim is to ensure, where reasonable and practicable, maximum year round high quality safe golf. To do this we must protect the playing surfaces during vulnerable winter months from damage caused by carts, trolleys and golfers during wet and frosty weather as well as protecting golfers.
Fairway mats can be hired with a refundable deposit.
Winter wheels trollies are available for hire from our professional at a reduced rate.
With your co-operation and support we can continue to improve our course and give members and visitors an enjoyable experience at Silkstone Golf Club.
