Alberni Golf: open day coming up

The 'people's pro' Gerry Fagan has the lowdown on Alberni Golf.

Once again we got away with it, the rain managed to hold off for most of the 18 holes.

Thanks to superintendent Steve White and the rest of the grounds crew for keeping the course in good spring conditions.
