Members celebrate at Gala presentation evening - November 10th

On Saturday evening the club held a gala presentation dinner for members who have won the various competitions during the golfing season.

At the start of the evening Club Captain Colin Mason welcomed the winners and congratulated them all. He commented “The club has had a very successful golfing year. As well as excellent scores in club competitions, there has been team success against other clubs in Lincolnshire with individual and pairs victories in County, Midland and National competitions. The course has been in excellent condition during the year and has benefitted from the full course irrigation system in the hot sunny weather. The club has also successfully hosted a national competition, the England Golf Senior Womens Open Strokeplay Championships.”
