On behalf of the team I would like to thank Anne Lloyd and her very willing group of volunteers who caddied at Kilmacolm. I would also like to thank fellow members and friends who came along - it is always nice to see so many red jerseys around the course. The team appreciated your support and encouragement over the 3 days.

Although we did not win, I was very encouraged by our performance this week and hopefully it will not be too long before we get our name on the Salver again!
