is a home match at the end of February against Shandon Park.

Lady Captain, Elana says: “We have been playing in this league for over ten years

trophy this year, every one of our players will have enjoyed fun golf on great courses,
made some new friends and have some stories to tell – even if they’re just about the weather!”
