Dear Members

Our club has been very busy over the holidays with many visitors enjoying the facilities.  This is very pleasing, with green fees, high demand for golf carts and the 19th hole making for good takings.


The first event for 2024 was well supported with 54 players in the field.  Thank you to our Sponsors Charles Wiffen Wines and More Mobility and to everyone who participated.  Congratulations to the winners.  Apologies for any discrepancies, the result sheets were a little confusing to follow!
