 Jan 18  The trees along the Roadside fairway were given a trim today to ease traffic flows along the road.  With road traffic control in place a good job was done before lunch with a large pile of branches in our burn heap to show for it.  Many thanks to the members who supplied chainsaws, vehicles and manpower to accomplish this task and Jim O for organising it.  Some members even managed 9 holes of golf afterwards!  Image
Feb 1 Opening Day was held with a reasonably sized field of golfers in warm conditions. Jenny Hulena and Tom Allan won the Newburn Trophy with a net of 62.4 in the Canadian Foursomes format  
Feb 11 Another Sowden achieved a Hole-in-One on the 15th today.  Judith proved she is just as good as her husband Roger in accomplishing this feat. I wonder if they would share their secret for a price?

April 28 Level 3 of the COVID-19 lockdown was implemented today with the result that members will be allowed on the course with prior bookings only, and restricted to their 'bubbles'.

An excellent turnout of golfers heralded the holding of our first tournament since the lockdown.  Ground and course conditions were very good for our Men's Midweek Tournament and the weather played its part by being mild and calm.  Hugh Murchison achieved the highest stableford score of 38.
