Paul Smith in the Pro Shop has run 2 very useful clinics for the pennant players and we extend our thanks to him for his time and valuable information.
The names of players and their teams is listed on the Ladies Room noticeboard.  There is also an Availability list and players should let their team Captain know if they are unavailable for any of the pennant matches.

Singles Knockout

This year the Singles Knockout event commences at the conclusion of the pennant season.  This is a change from previous years when the event has been held later in the year.
The Knockout Event will be held during May and June usually on a Tuesday. This is an opportunity to get in another day of golf with a bit of competition as well. If you have never played in this event and would like some more information talk to the Captain or any of the Match Committee members.

Give Golf a Go

Twenty six women took advantage of this programme during February with 10 taking up the option to play in the New Golfers day on Tuesday 29th of March. Please make new players welcome if you see some unfamiliar faces on the course or in the Club House.

Did you know this rule?

When a player drops a ball, under the rules of golf, it can roll and come to rest up to two club-lengths from where it first struck a part of the course, but no nearer to the hole, before it has to be re dropped without penalty. For further information see Rule 20-2 Dropping and Re- Dropping.
