Start of the Golf Season

Monday 1st April (All Fools Day) saw the Golf Season start off with a bang. Twenty one players attended making us well over subscribed. Two possible new members were given a taster of the game during the afternoon. Tea and cakes were well received to celebrate the start of the Golf Season

Start of Association Season 2019

Just eleven eager players turned up for the first session of the season on Sunday 31st March. The weather had sadly turned cold but there was no rain. As always at the start of the season the lawn proved to be heavy but with a little practice balls were arriving where they were aimed. Our numbers swelled at tea time to sixteen for tea and cake to celebrate the start of the season.
The numbers dropped to five for the final session – too cold.
