Newsletter   Men’s Golf Section    18 July, 2017      (Ron Carmody –Capt)

 Last Saturday’s inclement weather forced the postponement of the scheduled Stroke Event Round 3 of the Championship so it will now be played on Saturday 5 August. My apologies to the small keen band of golfers who then went out to brave the elements with several playing nine holes and some playing the eighteen as they wanted to get their golf handicaps updated.
