Thursday 1st August 2019 – Home to Tredegar & Rhymney Golf Club

The home team came away with a fine 5 – 1 win. However we weren’t the only winners! The visitors were very complimentary about the condition of the course and the hospitality they received. Again this reflects well on the Club and the people that make it the place it is! –

Well done to one and all particularly Alan, Rossi, Darren and the volunteers on course and to Jan and Caroline for the hospitality and refreshments.
