A rather damp start to the day -it will be interesting to see how many Grumpies come out to play today.

Next Monday (Queen’s Birthday) there is a fun competition if anyone is interested.  It is a combined stableford (pairs – any combination – 2 men, 2 women, 1 man/1 woman) and is open to all players and you can tee off anytime from 8.30am to 12.30pm – all you need to do is book a tee time and let me know on the day who your partner is – cost for this is $5/player.

Can I remind you that if there is a frost no play is allowed before 9.30am even if you have an earlier tee time booked.
