Spoke today with an Isla Canela green keeper and all greens re turfed by this Friday and maybe playable by end October. Just driven past at 8pm and a dozen cars in car park so some activity going on.

Interesting...

Maybe it's a former tenant/manager recovering his investments 😁😁😁 (no names, no pack drill!)

if ALL greens have been re-seeded already,----- thats a lot of serious work done
and if the greens are as good as IC then they are excellent
augurs well for the restoration of the overall finished product

Greens have not been seeded but turfed and irrigation system updated. October seems hopeful!. Putting green not re-turfed as of yesterday. Thought driving range may be first thing to get sorted and playable, think days of 1 euro a bucket of balls gone though , always way too cheap!.

Would be great to sort maybe 6 holes of east coast out for golf football?. A good game for the not so old and a good earner for the club owner.

Yes it’s true, meeting now at Isla Canela, Par 3, clubhouse near practice facilities, BUT, it’s for Members Only, they have a list of Members and only they will be allowed in.

These photos I took last week show that, compared to QDV, there is still a lot of work to be done.

I assume they mean ex members of a now defunct company/club. i find this very short sighted - do they not realise there is a huge reserve of good will here for them to make a success of this and they start off by alienating the wider community.
Can I ask that any "member" who does attend might put a brief summary of the proceedings on this forum so that those who cannot attend get some feedback at least.

It’s possible that if the meeting was open the Canela clubhouse would be too small

I'm part of the "wider community" and I don't feel alienated. Curious maybe but then I'm a nosey sod. I am sure they are going g to talk about golfy stuff, new membership arrangements etc. I'd probably be bored stiff. The thing I expect most people will be interested in will be the clubhouse and it's future. We can probably be patient for another few days and someone will post.

Hi Sumac, I don't see it that way at all, but as a way to keep the numbers manageable. There is no doubt that someone will report back to the wider community on here of what is said (but unfortunately that won't be me as I can't make the meeting). It needs to be remember that at the end of the day, IC has acquired a golf club, not a community centre, so that is going to be their number one priority.
Jusy my 2p worth.

Well said Bob, Mike & Mick. I'll just add that if you invite the ' wider community' you will go completely of topic. I'm sure, as has been said, that all they want to discuss at the moment is Golf Club related. Mike.
