The League is down to the last two weeks and will finish on Saturday, 5th March. Ladies, it’s all to play for as there is little or nothing separating the top seven or eight teams so play your part and make the difference to your team placing. The final of the League will take place on Saturday, 12th March and the format will be posted shortly. Please note the change back to the old course i.e. holes 1 – 9. Please familiarise yourself with the rules and regulations of the league prior to playing – see Notice Board for details.


There is a new nine-hole ongoing competition at the moment and will run in conjunction with the league holes 1 – 9.
