DGU ANNUAL DINNER 2017

A successful annual dinner was held at Carmarthen Golf Club on Friday 13th October despite it being not well supported by around half of affiliated clubs. Members and guests were welcomed to the dinner by the President of Carmarthen GC, Howard Thomas. Grace was said by Michael Williams, President of DGU. After a sumptuous meal, Michael Williams proposed a toast to Wales Golf which was suitably responded to by the President Jeff Harries from Carmarthen.
