Bank Holiday Weekend

We had a great turnout over the bank holiday weekend and players were delighted to see the sunshine at last. Thanks to the members for their support and we were also delighted to welcome many visitors to the club from golf clubs nationwide and also from the UK and United States Mercyhurst College. Some fine scoring was achieved throughout the weekend.
