Other Things to note…
A reminder of Dorset Ladies Golf Championships taking place this week. Whilst times are available all week, please note that the Championships will take priority over tee times if there is delay for any reason. We have tried to merge the tee times they need with allowing members access to the course, however, please give the ladies the respect that the competition deserves. We very much appreciate your patience while this event takes place.
This weeks events:
Monday – Humphreys Bowl
Tuesday – Volunteers Cup
Wednesday to Sunday – DLCGA Champs
We hope you all have a good week.
