Course Open, preferred lies through the green, winter rules, carry only (updated 22 January at 07:33)

This message came from the Waverton roll-up group.

I am sure that we all echo these words of appreciation:

On behalf of the 36 strong Waverton roll-up group I would like to express our appreciation for the work of the course committee and especially for the work of Gavin and the lads in keeping our course in such superb condition. With most courses you play on this time of year you are lucky to spot any course maintenance but despite the recent flooding we have noticed them back out on the course grafting away, mowing and gravel banding in all weathers. We feel privileged and fortunate in having a Head green keeper with Gavin's knowledge and experience to keep the course in such superb condition all the year round. As testament to the state of the course, this year has seen the largest number of us rolling up not only during the summer but also the winter months. Our large group contains some of the most prolific users of Eaton and as their unofficial representative I would like you to pass on all our thanks and appreciation to Gavin and his outstanding team. Tony Statham, unofficial secretary of the Waverton Roll-Up.
