Thursday this week see the Vet’s Pennants at Glen Innes and the following Thursday the Dorrigo Vets open is on. They are both good days and it is great to see Uralla being well represented at both of these events as both clubs support Uralla Events whenever possible.
Players will notice several white stakes as well as a lot of small white flags placed around the course. These are to do with the new watering system which hopefully will start construction on Monday 14th September. Chalkie Chandler is in charge of the water installation and he will be looking for a lot of help from his band of Volunteers.
Soon after the water installation Shaun will start coring greens and at this time he will be looking for help from members.
