President's Message 31st August 2010

The weather didn't do us any favours this morning. Early in the morning it was hard to tell if it would rain or clear up.

52 Veteran Golfers turned up at Half Moon Bay to take the chance that it would clear, and it did, except for a few spots late in the round.

Half Moon Bay course was in good condition considering the amount of rain we have had over the last few days. Thank you for the course preparation.

Welcome to Tomoji Oono a visitor from Japan.

Next games: Tuesday 7th September 2010 Gordonvale Golf Club, Single Stableford. Tuesday 14th September 2010 Mossman Golf Club, Single Stableford

Hope to see you there!
