INTERNAL COMPETITIONS

Many Internal Competition matches are well behind schedule, especially in the Silver Plate and Level Play Golf.

Please try and get all outstanding matches played, so the competitions can progress, and get completed this year, before the weather deteriorates.

If your match is going to be late, agree a date with your opponent and mark it on the board, likewise if you are going to be away, arrange a date with your opponent, before you go, don't wait til you get back.

If you are having particular difficulties arranging a match, contact me.
