 Returning to golf after a break, Mike King took out both Novelties  with his longest putt and NTP.  This was a good start for Mike and could well be a forerunner for the future.

The Vets 2019 Fixture List is displayed in the Mens’ Golf  Notice Board in the DDCC Reception area.

 Course Maintenance

Course cleanup is still in progress  following the strong winds .

There is still material which can be raked up into small piles on several fairways.

 Volunteers can make their own time to do this throughout the week with Tuesday mornings also being a good time for a combined effort.  It’s surprising what can be done in an hour of raking .

If we get enough volunteers we can now also put the leaf machine to work along the drains.

 Good Golfing All .
