Winter wheels are now needed for golf trollies, say Hever Castle Golf Club.
The ground conditions are now sufficiently soft enough for the club to ask that all trolley users, visitors and members alike, fit their winter wheels before venturing out onto the course.
The winter wheels reduce contact with the soil, making trollies easy to move and they also protect the fairways, eliminating the damage made by standard trolley wheels.
The rule on winter wheels for golf trollies comes into effect from Saturday 22 December.
Winter wheels for golf trollies can be purchased online, in the Pro Shop or you can hire a trolley from the club’s fleet, all of which have winter wheels fitted.
Hever Castle Golf Club’s preference (and the free option) is that clubs are carried but trollies will be welcomed as long as they are equipped for the conditions.
The winter wheels for golf trollies policy applies to both ‘push’ and ‘power’ trollies.
Hever Castle Golf Club is getting festive this Christmas. Receive £5 off your green fee in the month of December if you come to the club wearing a festive jumper or Santa hat.
So why not walk off that Christmas Pudding on fairways free from summer traffic and enjoy the course at its most peaceful. And don’t forget your winter wheels for golf trollies!
About Hever Castle Golf Club:
Hever Castle Golf Club is a 27 hole golf course, on the Hever Castle estate a mile down the road from the Hever Castle entrance.
It was in the 1920s that golf first featured on the estate when a private 9 hole course was built for former owner William Waldorf Astor’s personal enjoyment in the grounds where today’s Championship Course lies north of the Hever lakes.
The golf course proved a valuable tool for the Astor’s to entertain friends, family and for business.
The original course survived until the Second World War when it was sadly abandoned during the War effort.
The present day Championship Course was created in 1992 and the Princes 9 Hole Course opened in 1998.
