Welcome everyone to the upcoming season of 2018 and as always, we anticipate an exciting season of golf.
Our County team has undergone a change at the top with AJ Edwards handing over the reins to Neville Johnson as Team Captain. Good luck Nev! County training sessions continue at Carus Green, our main Sponsor, for which we are very grateful.

It just remains for me on behalf of the County Executive to wish all our teams and members good luck for 2018.
