What a change a bit of rain makes, green grass and many keen golfers returning for a fun-filled year of golf. Here’s hoping the rain keeps coming so all the people who have been suffering can have a prosperous 2020.

The scratch winners for the day were Sandra Schultz for division 1, Sally Keenan for division 2, a very excited Dot Tandy for division 3, and Sue Harris was the division 4 scratch winner. Sadly Sandra is leaving and moving back to Wagga. We wish Sandra and Dennis the best for the future. Thank you ladies for the wonderful afternoon tea you provided. Shame about the diet!
