Our New Logo

When Tom Linskey ( Our golf course designer and one of our Directors ) finished playing on the European Tour he was head hunted by the Italian Golf Federation to become the first ever technical director and national coach of Italian golf. In 1981 when Tom went around Italy trying to discover elite talent for the high performance school in Rome he arrived at Bergamo Golf Club and met Costantino Rocca…… who was the head caddy master at Bergamo Golf Club.

Costantino was 25 years old and had never played in a golf competition… amateur or professional. After getting him down to the school in Rome for coaching they went to the European tour school together in 1982 where Costantino won his card to compete on the European Tour. From there Tom got the Italian Golf Federation to sponsor Costantino on the tour until he could make his own way.

Year by year Costantino got better and better to eventually become the greatest Italian golfer in history! With 17 tournament wins globally, 5 European Tour wins and 3 Ryder’s cups where he beat Tiger Woods in the final day match play at Valderrama to win the Ryder Cup for Europe. It is crazy to be here and see how much of an impact that Tom has had on Italian golf and how he is held in such high regard by Costantino, the Italian Pro’s from the current generation and yesteryear, the Italian Golf Federation & PGA!

The new logo is a caricature of the famous moment that Costantino Rocca chipped in from the ‘Valley of Sin’ at St Andrews in 1995 to force a play off with John Daly.

Golf Course Report

Hello members and guests

With the welcome rain a fortnight ago we have gone out and fertilised all tees, fairways, greens and greens surrounds. With the moisture in the soil this is the ideal time to fertilise so the plant can utilise all available nutrients the best, when we get dry periods we will hold out fertilising as it will in fact burn and kill the grass. This should also help keep as much grass coverage as possible though winter.

The 1st tee works is almost complete with just drainage to be installed on the right side of the tee to drain excess water from the tee and the carpark. We over sowed the tee with league rye grass which has germinated well and gives a nice colour up.

Our irrigation repairs continue with more green valves being repaired, we are also installing numerous air valves around the course to get unwanted air out of the pipes which can cause leaks and pipe breaks. The irrigation work at the putting green and 27th hole is almost complete with us re directing the pipes and re moving the old line which ran directly underneath the path, the pipe has been replaced with a stronger metric poly pipe which will minimise the chance of future pipe breaks in that area.

All greens are now at 4mm and will remain at this height until the warm season, overall I’m very happy with the way the Poa greens have established and am just as happy with the remaining couch greens which seem to be handling the cooler temperatures extremely well and holding plenty of colour.

Kind regards
Luke Helm
