    Happenings Around The Club

     

    EVERYBODY PLEASE NOTE:

    The South West Men’s Vets Golf is being played this Wed 21st of August at the DDCC.
    The Golf Course and Bike Trails are closed for this event until 5pm.
    This means you CANNOT ride the bike trails, you CANNOT play Golf and you CANNOT walk across the course as there is a great chance you may be hit by a golf ball- yes sometimes golfers DON’T hit straight!!
    During the ladies 3 day golf weekend many people were coming onto the course to walk themselves and their dog/s etc. Bikers were riding the course despite it being closed. You may think you won’t get hit however errant golf balls are very common!! Also you are moving while the golfers are hitting and that puts the golfer off- so please be aware and walk and ride elsewhere when the course is closed. The golfers give up their weekends of golf for bike events to occur so please reciprocate when golf has the odd event on.
    Thank you.
