The 2020 Closing Sides was played in beautiful autumn weather, on a relatively dry course and resulted in a draw. 3:2 for the Lady President's team playing Greensomes over 18 holes, a win for the Lady Captain's team in the Single match play while the 9 hole Greensomes match was a very friendly all square. A very fitting result for the end of this golfing year where very little match play has taken place. Well played to all the ladies and both I and Lady President thank you for taking part.
It is usual to make several announcements after Closing Sides at the social gathering but as this could not take place this year, the announcements are by e mail.
Firstly to catch up on results of previous club competitions that have not already been announced and to congratulate the winners.
