September 9, 2015 Dear Members, While it is hard to believe that another summer has passed, there is much golf still to be played and the approaching cooler temperatures will come as a relief for both our players as well as our course. The past few months have been a beehive of activity for golf. For the first time we held a separate tournament for our Senior men. Congratulations to Mike Fernie for winning this event.

If you have not already done so please check out the latest edition of the Tattler for some great photos of this memorable event.
