LADIES –

Start of Season Scramble

 

Lady Captain Deirdre McCabe organised an 11 hole scramble on Wednesday last 25th February.  This was an ideal opportunity for the lady members to kick-start the season on one of the best mornings of the year so far and there was a great turnout of both existing and new members.   After a shotgun start at 11.00 a.m. the presentation took place in the clubhouse at 3.30 p.m. followed by refreshments.

 

It was a very enjoyable start to the golfing season with 18 hole competitions kicking off from Wednesday 5th March.
