County President's Day 2017

CPD1The Inaugural County President’s Day was played at Sherwood Forest Golf Club on Monday 9 October to raise funds for County Match Week 2018, which is to be hosted by Notts County Ladies’ Golf Association.

The format was a four-ball Stableford Am Am with 2 scores to count, 90% handicap. There were prizes for nearest the pin on all four short holes.
