Texas Scrambles!

The season has started!  Last Friday saw the clubhouse packed out with 77 meals prepared for players in the scramble and social members alike.  Please make a note of the following dates when the Texas Scrambles are arranged and  ensure you get your name down early.  Usually the sheets are put up in the conservatory a couple of weeks beforehand and book your table for delicious meal in the clubhouse too.  There is a different theme for the meals each week and we always have our lovely fish and chips on offer.  Dates for your diary are as follows:

Friday 26th May, Friday 2nd June, Friday 23rd June, Friday 14th July, Friday 28th July, Friday 4th August (Dons Dozen), Friday 1st September (change to 25th August as listed on green cards)

Remember, if you are a Kingsfleet member you are welcome to play, you just have to pay a £10 green fee to join in.

We look forward to seeing you all
