Dust off the clubs – our Charity Golf Day will be held on Thursday 19th April. It is now time to register your players, hole sponsorships and prizes to ensure a fun-filled networking day.

We will definitely be offering both 9-hole and 18-hole options and want to encourage any novices to register for the 9-hole course and have some fun. You will be in teams so give it a go! Non-golfers are welcome to come as spectators and dinner. Please make sure you get in quick as the field is limited.

Depending on the numbers we get for 18 Hole vs 9 hole players we may need to limit the numbers for each category.
