Well its May!! How did that happen? Great to see more and more of our ladies returning to the course. Well done to Linda B who came in with an amazing 69 net score on Saturday in the weekend 'Medal Qualifier'. Sunday (today) saw the first of our scratch matches, Chesfield Downs v Harpenden Common at home. Fantastic result! 4-1 to Chesfield Downs. A special mention goes to Amelia F who made her debut today for the scratch team and came in with a brilliant 4-3 win! Well done ladies!
