Club de Golf March Competition
Tuesday 23rd March was the third Club de Golf Stableford Competition of the year and we had an excellent turn-out of 67 players, which is the highest so far this year. The event was sponsored by Golden Leaves, which allowed us to pay prize money to the first 5 players in each division. Despite it being a fine day for golf, the scores were on the low side, with no-one playing to their handicap!

CGA Men’s Competition’s Secretary
Ron Moss was the CGA’s President and Captain for some time and the trophy has been played for annually. When Ron stopped playing golf through ill health he presented the trophy to the CGA. Ron has sadly passed on, but he has left behind a wealth of memories and what better way of remembering him than by playing for his trophy!
