After lots of really wet weather leading up to our Summer Meeting, it was nice to turn up at Deer Park this morning to a dry day. However, as it turned out, the bad weather was not too far away, and the evening players had to endure very heavy rain and even a nearby thunderstorm!

54 players took part and enjoyed the challenge of the course.


Everything ran smoothly, with grateful thanks to all of our helpers. From MCLGA – Secretary Maureen Joyce, Competitions Secretary Mags Hobbins, President Margaret Fergusson, Junior Secretary Amy Foster, Captain Caroline Mansley and Competition Committee Coleen Derighetti, along with Angela Hughes. From Deer Park – Christine Clarke and Fiona White.

Some great golf was played, as shown by the results.

Thanks to Deer Park Golf Club for accommodating us today and to the standard of the Course kept by the greenkeepers. The greens were in excellent condition despite the spell of wet weather we’ve been having.

We were well looked after by the Team at Deer Park, who provided the players with a tasty treat before and after their golf.  Huge thanks go to everyone involved!
