Next Saturday is a single stroke event sponsored by Michael Lane. This event will be the last single event leading up to the naming of the ‘Golfer of the Year’ male and female. After 12 months, the men’s division is fairly well decided but the ladies section shows a small gap between leading players and the final result could go either way.
Tee off from 11.30 am and the time sheet is on the board.
