Our atmospheric Clubhouse
First built in 1962, the clubhouse has a rustic feel that members wish to preserve… but the roof has now been replaced thanks to the generosity of our Lady Captain
The clubhouse now sports a very smart new hat!
Our Lady Captain also upgraded our golf clubs storage… so many thanks Luigina.
