Dear Members

A week of all seasons’ weather.  We were very lucky there were no disruptions to any club events, unlike other regions, who got more than their share of rain.

Please check the noticeboard for full details and list for entries for the following:

  • Oaro Cup – 5th May – Mixed Canadian Foursomes.
  • Hunting & Fishing Men’s Open – Deardon Cup best 36 hole gross -1st and 2nd June.

The Barron Pot will be played on Sunday, 28th April – apologies, but there have been several unavoidable date changes this month.

Merino Jerseys with club logo – just following up on a previous email to remind you to get your order in if you are interested in purchasing one.  Please see Surf so he can place an order a.s.a.p. to ensure delivery before the winter.
