Charity money raised in 2019
Last years Captains, Pete Wood and Julie Ricketts would like to announce the total of Charity Money raised for the year 2019.
Normally we would have handed over the cheque at a social event but as you know that isn't possible this year.
The sum of £8479.83 was raised for the Macclesfield MS Society. An amount we are both delighted with.
Various events and do's were held over the year, which were well supported by the members of AEGC, family and friends. We wish to thank everyone for their support and generosity.

Tuesday's Competition on the 17/3/20
Today saw the ladies play their first 18 hole competition which was a bit of a challenge, 5 clubs plus a putter.
After so many course closures it was good to be out on a warm, sunny day although under foot it was very muddy. The course looks its best in the spring with all the daffodils out and the weeping willows coming into a lovely green.
The competition was won by Olwen, Julie and Sue K ( who was the ghost) with 55 points. In second place were Mary, Liz G and Sue K with 54 points.
