Malcolm Stapelhurst very generously sponsored the outing at Hever putting up some fabulous prizes for the various winners and runners up. A big thank you goes to Malcolm from the MGS committee – a fantastic gesture which was appreciated by all who attended.

Twenty-Two members attended the fixture on the 17th April in very good weather on a very challenging course in excellent condition.  The turnout was again excellent, with both new and established member’s performing well.
