The Winter League qualifying will conclude on Sunday.
The annual Christmas Hamper competition, organised for Sunday last, had to be cancelled due to frost and low lying fog and the competition has now been rescheduled for Sunday, with the original timesheet still in operation.
All members who are unable to play and, indeed, those who wish to be added to the timesheet, should contact the Golf Reception by no later than tomorrow (Thursday).
The Foyle Sunday Society will be holding their annual Christmas Hamper on Sunday, December 9th and the timesheet, which will run from 9am to 11am, is now available in the shop. All those wishing to play during that time slot, are asked to enter their names on the list with all others booking their own times. Last cards on the day will be issued at 11.30am.
Turkey competitions will continue on a daily basis.
