ANOTHER rain-soaked week at Curlewis! I am sure all of our members and guests are happy the course has received some much-needed rain but now it is cutting into their weekly golf! The course is holding up in fantastic condition despite all of
the rain! Hopefully some nice weather is around the corner so both our members and guests are able to enjoy a full round of golf in nice weather without interruption. Despite the course playing longer due to the conditions we have seen some very impressive scoring the past week:
