Provincial Golf 2017

The Annual Mark Provincial Golf Day was held at the Oaks Golf Club on Tuesday 11th July 2017 with 40 brethren and guests taking part in conditions which could only be described as damp, very damp and wet. However, spirits were not dampened.

This year we were joined by two of our brethren from North Wales, in the persons of VW Bro David Wright DepPGM and W Bro Vic Rogerson, and I am pleased to say that the private contest between our two Provinces went in our favour.

A donation of £100 was made to the Provincial Grand Masters Discretionary Fund.

My thanks to all who took part whether as a team member an individual, also to the caterers and Green Staff for looking after us all so well throughout the day.
