Following the recent processes of OPM nest removal and subsequent preventative spraying this spring, the Green staff have been inspecting trees to identify areas where OPM may have possibly reappeared.

Unfortunately they have identified that area to the right side of the 13th green, right of the path has a localised infestation of OPM.

You will find Forrestry Commission information on OPM below

OPM INFORMATION

We believe that this for the time being is localised to this area, but the nature of OPM means that they easily spread. Therefore we ask that all Members remain vigilant when near trees.
Be particularly aware of any nests, or caterpillars hanging by their threads, and at head height. Please do not attempt to touch the caterplillars or their nests.

OPM can be particularly dangerous for dogs so we would rather not have dogs on the course, and remember if you do they MUST be under control and on a lead AT ALL TIMES.

If your stance should be affected by an OPM nest , you may take relief without penalty under Rule 16.2

We hope that our preventative spraying treatment this year results in the infestation being far less serious than last year.

Presently our Greens staff are attempting to remove any nests that they are able to do safely.

General Manager
