For members taking part in the senior’s open texas scramble on the 7th May the caterer has agreed to open the kitchen at 0730 for breakfast and for the early starters it has been agreed that rolls can be ordered, by phone, from the 7th tee and collected from the kitchen fire escape door as you pass through the car park enroute to the 8th tee.
