Web Site Changes – News(Blog)

Following the Committee meeting yesterday, I have made a number of changes to the web site.

New Diary
I have re-organised the old Fixtures list into a proper Diary based on Google Calendar. This should make it easier to keep track of our tournaments and matches whether friendly or serious. Please let me know how this looks on different devices.

Private Members’ Area
There is also a Private Members’ Page where I have started another blog for members only. This is password protected, I will let you know more about it after a few more experiments.

New Navigation and Search facility
There is now an additional menu at the bottom of every page to help you find your way around and if that’s not enough, you can easily find what we are saying about you in the new Search box at the top.

Please let us have any comments on the changes by filling in the form below. We won’t send you spam if you fill in your email address.

Results of Ladies Golf Singles Tournament


Wednesday 25th of June was a beautiful sunny day and the ladies enjoyed a fine day of competition for the Ladies Shield – kindly donated by Paddy Jones, a former stalwart of the club.
The shield was won by the Chairman Linda Gavigan who won four games. The Secretary, Lynne Lyle , Jean Frith and Joan Simms were all runners up with three games.


Former Chairman, Brian Shipman congratulated the winner. Thanks are also due to the Brian Parsons for keeping the score.

Well done to all who took part – some more pictures can be found in our gallery page.
