Views from the Black Crow

More smiles from the Black Crow again as everyone finished their round in 4hrs 30mins. Not bad given the nature of the course and distance from green to tee.
There have been adverse comments about lack of choice in pro-shops when redeeming category prize vouchers and about waiting for stock to come in not being an option because of their finite life. Consequently, the vouchers will now be redeemable through Med Golf. The value remains the same: 60€ for winners and 40€ for runners up, but the vouchers can be used to offset membership fees or as payment, in full or in part, for items from the Med Golf merchandising table which will be on display at each event. Moreover, we will keep a record of the winners in order that vouchers can be accumulated to increase the total value - which should delight our serial winners!

Thank you to everyone who supported this event and congratulations to the prize winners. The new season has got off to a good start and there will be many more opportunities to enjoy a great day out on different golf courses and work your way into the Med Golf Masters in August 2017.
