Damage to the course from the recent storms
Luckily the storm last Wednesday did not cause any structural damage to the clubhouse or major damage to the golf course. There were however over 20 trees blown down and there is a large amount of debris spread across the course. The management committee is asking members for help with the cleanup operation. If you are willing, able and available to help please come along at 9.30am on Tuesday Morning. We will meet in the back car park. Please wear suitable clothing. We would greatly appreciate your help.
