Kevin Sykes played in our Seniors Open during Festival Week, this is what he had to say ‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a most enjoyable day today at your Seniors Team Event.

All the staff at your club were most welcoming and friendly. The course was a credit to your green keeping team, it was very well presented and the greens were in an excellent condition. On completing our round, we sat down to a very nice meal in your clubhouse.

Please thank all concerned in making it a really enjoyable day and we look forward to making a return visit.

Best wishes for the rest of the golfing year. Kind regards Kevin Sykes (Wrexham GC)’
