There's been some issues with flooding and unwanted visitors on the Ruxley course over the winter months. I've also received information from Ruxley GC members that the course is unfit.

I spoke to both manager and green keeper at Ruxley today (Thur 12th May) who both advised that apart from some 'scarring' on the 12th and 13th greens the course is in good condition. (sec)
