The Capel Touch

With what is a fantastic opportunity for Ben to gain invaluable experience working on a "top 20" Golf Course helping prepare for a World Class major event, Ben will, from Sunday spend 8 days as part of the Lake Karrinyup Course Maintenance team preparing the course for the new World Super 6 Tournament to be held from next Thursday.
 I put forth Ben's name in recognition for his outstanding contribution and achievements this year both on course and in his studies, and I am sure he will make the most of this exciting opportunity which will only benefit his professional progression and in turn also benefit Capel Golf Club through the knowledge and experience he will gain.

Ben will also have the opportunity to follow the field during his time off between course maintenance hours, I look forward to sharing with you his experiences on his return. 


In other course news we have been busy preparing the course for our own Ladies Major event of the year the 2017 Summer Cup. We are confident we have produced quality turf surfaces for this event with the majority of the preparations complete.
As we head into the final days we have one eye on the developing weather, with forecast of heavy rain and strong winds, again we are confident in the plans and preparations we have in place, but mother nature may have plans of her own which may impact on course conditions and debris over the course making our job a little more difficult. Should be an interesting few days.

Good luck to this years entrants, hopefully we miss the worst of it and the event runs smoothly. For the male members deciding to play other courses this weekend Happy Hooking.
