General
Last weekend’s Coronation Bowl was a three-ball medal competition, as stated on notice board, BRS and club diary, some members decided to play in four balls and enter the competition, can we please ensure the club notices are adhered to and play in three balls especially for Board competitions. If there are four people in a group two two balls are preferable.

The fence on the right of the first fairway, near the Pavilion, has been removed the boundary of the course is now the inside (to the fairway) of the first gravel pathway so anything on or over the gravel path is Out of Bounds.
