With Sunday’s golf a washout we look forward to this Sunday when two pennant teams will travel to Glen Innes. Teams are still being finalised, but hit off will be a 10am with a shotgun start.
In other news a decision has been made to close the course until Friday the 29th November when a further decision will be made on whether to extend the closure. The closure was a result of the recent rain and the bare patches around the course. To allow the course to recover it needs a break from golfers and carts.
