My first task this week is to thank Brian Duguid for his hard work during the week clearing leaves on the course. Because of his hard work, those playing the course will now find it easier to find their ball and play shots from the cleared areas. It is also good to see Jeff Sutcliffe back on the scene with his Christmas Quiz. (more…)
