Morning Lakesiders, So its official Summer is here, well its a sign as signified by the No Placing-Play as it Lies signs up here at the course and pavilion this morning. Mid Week opens are now in full swing with good fields over the last 3 weeks. I see young Daire Hanrahan making his name midweek with a win and some other very good scores. Well done Daire. Another very notable performance recently was Ray Murphy’s in winning the April Medal. Ray produced a score in very tough conditions that was exceptional.
