Captain’s Report – July

What a busy few weeks its been since my Captains Day and my last report. It’s great to see so many new faces out enjoying our course both on corporate days and open days, and the positive comments that I am hearing are really appreciated, the work that Zac and the team are putting in is really paying dividends and the new greens iron is working wonders, the best greens around by far.
