96 ladies attended out Ladies Spring Open Day and all agreed that they had never seen the course looking so great. The cherry blossom was at its best, as were the bluebells in the woods at the 16th and 17th holes. A deer was spotted by some groups, along with curlews, sand martins, oyster catchers and other wild life - a real "nature walk" as one of the players commented.
The course was in immaculate condition and every group enjoyed their golf on what was a warm spring day with sun and cloud.
