If you have a Groupon voucher, it suggests making a booking, but in fact I think you are safe to follow the general advice above, you don't need to book a specific start time, just so long as you start within the eligible hours i.e. between 10 and 12 on weekends and before 6pm on weekdays. We had to allow for the possibility of requiring booking start times, because it could have got a bit crazy if all the vouchers were purchased straight away. In reality it has been a steady take-up and I think we can cope fine:-)
*** NB Course Reserved for Quarry Park Open 20-21 September ***
The course is currently open from 10 am until sunset on weekdays, and from 10am until 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays. From September 8th we will be open from 2pm until sunset on weekdays. Please note that the course is reserved for the Quarry Park Open on the weekend of 20/21st September.
We are now into the busiest time of year, and the car park can fill up, so it would be great if people could car share where possible, and park close to adjacent cars, so we can accomodate as many visitors as possible.
Here are the sunset times for the rest of the summer.
Aug 18: - 20:25 Aug 25: - 20:10 Sept 01: - 19:54 Sept 08: - 19:38
From the end of April, or possibly earlier, we will be opening every weekday evening from 6pm.
*** NEWS FLASH ***
Liam is working this week so the course will be open from 2pm until sunset 15-17th April. Then 10am until 6pm April Friday 18th to Monday 21st
*** END NEWS FLASH ***
We have the Easter and May bank holidays coming up, and we will be open from 10:00 until 18:00 on those days.
The course is still wet in places, so walking boots are best. You can always skip the wet holes and play some others twice instead. Holes 1, 5, and 12 are the worst affected.
In total we had an impressive turnout of 61 players taking part in the 2014 Chilly Chuck at QP on 22/23 February. The Open division champion is Chris O'Brien who won by 3 shots from Derek Robins and Dan Ryan. The Amateur Division Champion is QP's own Gary O'Malley, who won after a play-off with Neal Clifton. The Intermediate Amateur title went to Nick Blakehill.
Conditions were very testing with high winds and slippery ground. Players came from far and wide, including Cornwall and Scotland, but the furthest travelled were 4 friends of mine who came from the Bergen club in Norway. Big thanks to Bruce for being Tournament Director. The full results are posted on the PDGA website.
