Official Going Report 2017

28th May 2017

With just over 3 weeks to go until the 161st Famous Alva Games the latest report from the Clerk of the Course.

Official ground status GOOD, GOOD to FIRM near sprint start. The foul weather of the last week has softened the field but it is still just on the firm side of Good. There is a very lush covering of grass which looked due to be cut in the next day or so. 

Track up to the golf course on the hill race track has been cut back to remove gorse and overhang. Still Firm to hard underfoot. Further work has been done to remove the nettles and the high hedges on the path up to the golf course. Updates will be posted on here and on our Facebook page at regular intervals.
