Many thanks go to the participants, the parents helping us with the junior golf tournament, and also some of the members that teamed up with some of the juniors. The Delcastle Golf Course is fortunate to have a staff that goes over and beyond whenever golf events are run which creates our successful events. Thanks!!!!
