Old 8th tee - no more hitting from here

And, on Saturday March 16, after golf, volunteers level the surface and lay turf on the lower level of the tees.

In total 300 square metres of turf, valued at $2100 was laid. The turf was generously donated by Doug Fleet of Marne Valley Turf, one of the Club's platinum sponsors.
