Even the snakes are enjoying our local golf courses
SNAKES are coming out of hibernation as some of the 124 players at Casino Golf Club found out last Saturday.
No-one was bitten and some excellent scores were posted so it seems even a slithery encounter cannot put those keen golfers off their stroke,
Along with the warmer weather, it’s good to keep a lookout where you are walking in case you accidentally disturb any wildlife.
On Monday 31st August 2020, 172 Members and Veterans played an 18 Hole Stableford event.
The winner was Stephen Harrison with 46 points.
