Trick Shot of the Year….(so far!!)
Top candidate for 2019 trick shot of the year is Ryan Bowen. Playing recently with new member John Williams, Ryan managed his first unofficial hole-in-one playing the 4th hole……!!. A severe hook with his drive off the 4th tee somehow saw his ball end up in the hole on the 11th green. Ryan is happy to share the story and to have his leg pulled for at least the rest of the year.
Welcome to our new members…..
The club would like to extend a very warm welcome our new members who have joined the club in this year and would like to ask other members to help them settle in and feel at home.

New look from the 11th tee….
Driving from the tee on the 11th hole will look a whole lot different for the foreseeable future now that the greenstaff have cleared undergrowth to the right-hand side for the path from tee to the fairway.
