Thank you to the Greenstaff, as the course was in excellent condition, and to Dawn and her team for providing great food all day.
Also to the Clarkes, Luggs and Pete Kennard who helped on the 12th Tee serving tea & coffee and ‘spotting’ ⛳
Finally, a big thank you to Kevin Barry for taking on the responsibility of organising the event, and to those UGC Seniors who helped out before and on the day. Without their continued support, the event would not have been successful.
There were many comments made by visitors complementing the Club on a great event.
