Golf Tournament

Tuesday 23 October

The Autumn tournament will again be at Wyboston Lakes golf course. It is an interesting and
attractive course with some water hazards but quite flat and not overly strenuous.

There will be the usual bacon butty and coffee on arrival by 9.00am and, as has become the norm the competition will be a Texas Scramble. Tee offs will be from Hole 1 from 10.00am. I am hoping that there will be a good mix of ladies and men. After the competition there will
be a 2-course meal. There will be a vegetarian option.

The aim is to produce mixed ability teams of 4 with roughly the same collective gross handicap, teams to be revealed on the day, except the current holders of the LALG Challenge Cup (Brian Burt, Colin Davies, Paul Bigley and Gillian Moore) will remain as a team.

Payment to be made on the day, which will be £45.00 but any noshows (not previously notified to me by the previous Friday) will also be expected to pay. To secure a place please ring Michael Homfray-Cooper as below, after 22nd July with details of your handicap and any special dietary requirements.


The LALG AGM for 2018 will be held in Kincaid Hall, The Settlement, Letchworth Garden City SG6 4UB on Tuesday 20 November 2018 at 7.30pm
