Any updates in relation to above will be posted on the WhatsApp group. If you have any used or unwanted golf balls that you wish to dispose of, please drop them into bucket in ladies locker room. These will be used for practice and lessons for our Inter Club teams, many thanks to those who have added to the bucket. Much appreciated!!
Practice is underway for the upcoming mixed teams with Aisling taking our ladies on board and putting them through their paces. A big thank you to Aisling for taking on this task, but rest assured our ladies will certainly benefit from her input!!
Our Handicap secretary and committee met to discuss the input from the ladies in accordance to their handicaps. A review will be on-going throughout the year in relation to above decision.
