Congratulations to Arthur Tormay and Team 3 winners of The Chestnut Tree Spring League 2019.
The draw has been made for the Mixed Foursomes 2019. This has always been a very popular competition and this year promises to be a very exciting contest. Four ties will be played in the Preliminary Round with the winners progressing to Round 1.
In a small change to previous years, there will be a draw for Round 2 opponents after Round 1 results are complete. The addition of a little suspense will bring an extra element to the competition this year. It will be essential, therefore, to ensure all matches are completed on time. All players’ cooperation on this is greatly appreciated.
