For those of you who were not in attendance for our first Medal Tournament on 12th April, the tournament will run over 10 months ending in March 2015. A league points system will be run over that period, and will end with a Grand Dinner and Awards ceremony. Each month, players will compete for a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal in both Male and Female categories. Mr Tommy Astaphan very kindly sponsored the medals for the month of April and I am equally delighted to inform you that Mr Robin Ricketts has kindly offered to sponsor the month of May.
All Association members are reminded that the driving range and practice bunkers and chipping area are available throughout the month of May and all other times for those players seeking to improve their game ahead of the ‘Anguilla Open ‘ that will take place at the end of June.
Once again…please call in or telephone the Club House to register for the tournaments as soon as possible, it really does make all of the difference to the staff at the Course and the Catering staff to have an idea of numbers as early as possible.
