Everyone at FGD was holding their breaths after the excitement of restrictions lifting and the day being able to go ahead. We were all watching the dreary forecast but nevertheless, the showers cleared and the day went ahead…. There were 93 players out on the course who were welcomed by Esther Bogaart (Karinya House Vice President of the Committee) who reminded us of the important work that Karinya House do.

A fun day was had by all, out in the sunshine, gathering together after a difficult few months. The rain held off until the last hole was played and we were so pleased that all 18 holes were able to be played.

The 19th hole was particularly enjoyed. A big shout out to our winners and very generous sponsors….
