Fallen tree June 10th 2014

A tree fell on Tuesday afternoon, due to the rain and it turns out the base was also rotten. It was a large beech tree and it blocked Manse Road plus one of our accesses to the course.

Course invaders!

This strange effect was found on young trees at 3rd fairway earlier this week.

We have been advised it could be some kind of moth!

Also found some strange bees nesting by the shed, Arran Bee Club took samples and are investigating...!

Any feedback welcome.
