2019 Spring Newsletter
One can only hope that spring is on its way. I don't know about you but I'm tired of the wind🌀 and rain☔, fortunately, our course has been playable during the winter even if the weather has not been kind. I can't believe with all the Daffodil bulbs we planted so few have come up.
Our resident black swans are nesting by the 7th green again hopefully this year they take better care of their babies. No sign of Paradise Ducks nesting.
I have put in for 2 weekend, 2 midweek, a Betty Faesan team and 2 A pennant teams as this will now be a 4 person team.
A Pennants will be adding a 4 BBB competition to run in conjunction with the match play.
If you haven't already let us know that you want to play please do so. I will let you know dates as soon as I know.
Ladies, this is a site I have been cc on to. I don't know how to get it so you just "click on" but see how you go.
We say farewell to Brianna, our Golf Services Manager. I think I can say from all of us ladies, you have been a delight to work with and we will miss you. We wish you well in your new career.
