Not long now to we publish our events calendar for 2021 which, now that Covid restrictions are being eased, as long as we all continue to keep safe all our events will progress as planned.
All team managers now have their league packs and should be good to go from next week when the first scheduled matches in the Gents leagues will ‘tee off”.
As ever we couldn’t hold any events without the magnificent support of our member clubs, and this year is no exception so here’s hoping to much more golf and a lot less lockdown from now on.
