The juniors and coaches alike always enjoy their visit to Gleneagles regardless of the weather, and this year was no exception.
Knowing they might have a chance to go to Gleneagles is a marvellous motivator to our juniors and rewards them for the progress they make through our coaching activities.
Thanks to the coaches and helpers, and on behalf of Muckhart Golf Club, thanks again to Gleneagles for the hospitality. We love every minute of it!
