Squad Training

Our training re-commenced at Playsport today. Our Squads were very enthusiastic to get started given the long lay-off due to the recent bad weather. Lesley MacKay had us working on our short game followed by skills tests on the range. Everyone enjoyed the challenges presented to us and are already looking forward to our next session in February.

Our thanks go to Lesley for her instruction and to Playsport for their continued support of our Squads.
