      The morning conditions were cool but otherwise fine with overnight showers dissipating by hit off time. The golf course was in excellent condition with smooth greens. This is the first time we have played the Sandhurst North course and is a change from playing the Champions course in winter. The North course is open styled and borrows from the traditions of Scotland with several distinct features such as the stone wall surrounding the 3rd green and the burn which dissects the 9th fairway.

      We extended a warm welcome to our member guests Tony Jones from Waterford Valley, Chris Warne from Sandhurst and Peter Webb from Long Island. A special welcome to new members David Harbinson from Eastern, Shane Hawkes from Settlers Run, Colin Jenkins from Eastern and Ken Taylor from Camberwell playing their first game with us today.
