OPEN CLUB CLASSIC
A big thank you to everyone who supported our open club classic last week by entering teams or purchasing raffle tickets. The week was a great success for our club with 153 teams playing over the seven days. The compliments received on our course and club house facilities from visitors were all very positive and even the weather was on our side every day except when Storm Betty decided to visit us on Friday!
Our raffle has once again proven very popular and we have extended the draw date to coincide with the presentation of prizes in the clubhouse on Saturday 26th August at 4pm.
