Nicky organised an excellent Pro's day with 50 teams of 4 competing for a superb array of prizes. The goody bag before the start, refreshment at the halfway point and an excellent BBQ meal after the round made for an enjoyable day and if you were good enough to get in the prizes it was even better. Nicky's team had an excellent score of 54 and that didn't include the 'hole in one' that Nicky had on the 18th, well done Nicky and a big thanks from all the members.

However these results have now been presented to the committee and are available to you the members. A summary of these results is presented below as a slideshow.
