Short Course to allow play to continue.

Dur to the continued inclement weather, unfortunately week-end competitions were scarce.  To continue playing it was necessary to shorten the course, however a lot of golf was enjoyed by all and especially the seniors. The course was shortened, with temporary mats installed for Tee box’s, this new course layout will continue until the weather becomes more favorable for 18 hole play.
