The Women’s Committee has decided to have 4 “learner days” of golf beginning Monday 12th February (after our usual 9 hole competition) from 4.30-5.30pm. 

So any women or junior players interested in getting back to playing golf, or if you wish to learn to play, our women members will give you instruction, and will play 3 holes of golf with you.

A small trophy will be awarded. Clubs are available, and there is no charge.
