New Members Welcome at Golf Club

a snow-covered fairway

by Fiona Currie –

March came in like a lamb but the agreeable weather was short lived and snow and ice decimated the fixture list last week.

With the course closed from Monday afternoon until Sunday there was no play in any of the competitions except some last minute attempts to improve Winter League standings. The finals of the Winter League take place this Saturday and the closing positions can be seen on the ClubV1 Members Hub, the club website and the noticeboard.

Playing golf is not only great fun but also offers a wide range of mental and physical health benefits; it is a social event, it is good for mental well-being and alertness, it reduces stress and anxiety and it is great exercise helping both physical fitness and weight loss. The summer season is almost upon us and players wanting to join the club are encouraged to contact the club to take advantage of the membership offers for new members.
