North Ryde hosted their annual Junior Open Championship yesterday, Thursday 20 January.
Once again it was a very successful day with all players enjoying themselves. The weather was kind to us with only a couple of light showers. The course was in amazing condition and we had many comments on how beautiful the course is, thanks to Ron and his staff.
This event hosted a number of very low marker entrants.
