There is a reasonable turnout of Grumpies today trying to get some golf in before we get more rain later this week.

For those of you who generally use carts if you are looking to play please call the office to check if carts are allowed.

Coming up on Friday we have Featherston Wrestling Club Fundraiser – this is an Ambrose so if you wish to play please get your team in as soon as possible.  At the weekend we have interclub – Div 10 are at home playing Waikanae and Div 3 are away at Trentham – good luck to both teams.
