Looking for a game join‘The Pro’s Saturday Club’.
Starting from Saturday 29th January and each and every Saturday thereafter I will be organising games for members. It is particularly aimed at new members but I would be delighted to see any club member come along and get involved. It will be open to both male and females and it will be called the ‘Pro’s Saturday Club’. Our idea is to get everyone to meet at the Pro Shop at 1.30pm, draw for partners and play 10 holes. It is not a competition, you do not need a handicap just come along and join in. It will be a great opportunity to meet other members and enjoy a relaxed game of golf. To make this a success I need your help, don’t worry if you can’t make the first Saturday as it will become a regular fixture in the Pro Shop’s calendar. Please give this initiative your support.
