As we approach Christmas it's been another fun packed and busy week at the club. On Saturday we held our first Winter Open of the season with 45 players taking part, on Sunday we had our Captains Drive In Competition which was a great festive occasion attended by well over 50 in total.
This was followed by the Junior Trophy Presentation, Christmas Raffle Draw with Tea Party and the visit of Santa.
On Monday we staged the Jack FM Christmas Texas Scramble in aid of Helen and Douglas House Hospice supported by 15 teams taking part in the day.
We even managed to schedule a staff Christmas Night out last Thursday!
We begin this week's newsletter with results from our December Winter Open.
