Our Captain, Mr Robert Curry would like to pay special tribute to his family and friends who supported him by providing refreshments throughout the whole day from dawn until nearly dusk. Their excellent food and words of encouragement were a welcome relief to the weary golfers as they passed the 12th hole! He would also like to acknowledge the superb efforts of the green-keeping staff who worked tirelessly during the month to ensure that the course was in such pristine condition.

Congratulations to you all from Captain Robert.
