We have built on the success of previous years and this year we have seen the number of junior golfers swell.

To help continue the success, we are looking for volunteers from both the ladies and men’s branches to give up an hour of their time on a Tuesday evening at 7pm. Anyone interested in getting involved can get in touch with the ladies or men’s branch or just come along on Tuesday evening at 7pm.
