Flash­back

The cur­rent sprin­kler sys­tem at Hill Top op­er­at­ing on the orig­i­nal course was in­stalled 30 years ago and opened in Oc­to­ber 1987.

Wa­ter­ing the course changed from above­ground sprin­klers to an au­to­matic pop-up sys­tem funded by deben­tures pur­chased by mem­bers.

With the course al­ter­ations by North Links in 2001, the wa­ter­ing sys- tem was fur­ther up­graded to the ef­fi­cient ser­vice that we have to­day.

Com­ing events

The two-per­son am­brose on Satur­day is a med­ley event when you can en­ter as two men, two women or a mixed pair.

The day will be spon­sored by the Vil­lani fam­ily and it is bound to have a strong Italian flavour.

Golfers are asked to put their en­tries on the list in the golf shop to help with cater­ing, which is sure to be gen­er­ous.

Greens are be­ing cored and top dressed this week with work­ing bees on Mon­day and Wed­nes­day be­gin­ning at 9.30 am.
