Andy Hall General Manager commented on this wonderful achievement.

“59 is an amazing achievement and to achieve this at the age of 38 holding down a full time job and supporting his wife and young family makes this achievement extra special.

“Darren has managed to shoot 7 rounds under par this year and has reduced his handicap to plus 2. Darren just needs one good round to reach the dizzy heights of plus 3.
