imageA fantastic September day brought great weather and a superb turnout with 220 people taking part in the first WGC Am-Am. Unfortunately there were one or two slow groups in the middle of the field which had a knock on effect causing several 5 hour rounds. I would like to apologise for this problem and hope it didn’t spoil everyone’s overall day. The added excitement of the £1,200 first place created a buzz around the club and on a perfect day there were some fantastic scores recorded.
