By Alex Russon / September 12, 2021

After months of near perfect golfing conditions, the weather this week reminded us that it’s only too willing to bite us on the bottom. A deluge of rain put paid to Saturday’s proposed Medal competition with the ‘Course Closed’ sign evident for the majority of the day. Even the hardiest of players struggles to putt […]
