LISMORE WORKERS MEN

Dear All – sensational winter golfing weather at the moment and it’s great to see so many people out in competitions and social play enjoying it.

Saturday’s modified stableford event proved interesting with no-one quite sure what made a good score, though it did seem to suit the lower grades with some big numbers in the 20s posted.

Next Sunday is our Foursomes Championships with gross and net events in play, with the whole entry fee going back into prizes. Why not get out there and have a crack.
