There was a great turnout of members on Saturday November 10 for Closing Day and Top Cat/Top Dog final. It was a beautiful day, and with 85 in the field, the starters efficiently sent the players out to multiple tees for a shotgun start. The course was in superb condition and there were many outstanding scores.
