Guest Day 4/27 (Frances)

Not surprising, but today was another rain-out. Will we ever have a “Guest Day”? Next Tuesday’s weather forecast is for clear skies and sunshine! The sign-up sheets for May 4, 11 and 18 as well as the Spring Handicap tournament are posted downstairs on the DBWGC bulletin board in the Pro Shop.

Keep Dry… Frani
