It is nice to see the sun shining and a good turnout of Grumpies today.  Fingers crossed the weather is this good on Thursday for our Murray Halberg Day – don’t forget cards need to be in by 11.30am for a midday tee off – entry is $20.  Don’t forget to bring plenty of cash as there is a raffle and an auction following golf.

Please remember to get your entries in for the 36 Hole Mixed Foursomes on Saturday 11th November.  If you need a partner let the office know and we will endeavour to find you someone.
