Beautiful improvements to Yama golf course

Our course is looking the picture of health at the moment and the newly constructed rock retaining wall has certainly added to the beauty of the 8th green. As usual, the very hard-working Doug Luckie was out finishing off the 18th cart path on Wednesday. Doug, Brian Smith, Andrew Kelly, Tony Moran, David Grant, and their helpers have certainly done an amazing job around the course. We extend our thanks for making the course the gem that it is.
