The committee and members would like to thank Bill Dwyer for the amazing reconstruction of the boundry wall running the length of the seventh hole. From the Pallotine corner to Turtulla Cross after months of work and his incredible attention to detail, Bill completed his task and members now have a clear view of what can only be described as a 'work of art'. Thank you Bill.
