Message from Cheeseman:


That they say is a wrap!

2021 – a season of two halfs, has had its fair share of challenges, but as always we have pushed hard and overcome them, coming out on top!

A great feeling to go out on a high today with some fresh snow, sun and blue skies after a topsy turvy few days of weather!

A huge thank you to all our club members, guests and supporters – we couldn’t have done it without you!

A very special thanks to our awesome staff team who has stuck by us through the challenges and have formed some great friendships through the journey – you guys rock!

Once the dust settles we will start into the various summer maintenance and project works to make sure we are ready to roll again in July 2022. Don’t forget the Lodges are available for hire during the summer months so if you are looking for a unique spot for a birthday, wedding,, or any sort of gathering please get in touch.

Thank you again everyone and we look forward to seeing you back for winter 2022.

Stay Safe & have an awesome Summer.

Regards from Cam, Sam, all Staff and the Management Committee.
