The Lags (The Lay-Abouts Golf Section) was formed in the very early 70’s for those who didn’t have to work every Monday morning. It still meets Monday mornings and over time has become the Seniors Section, (though still known as the Lags).
As well as their regular meet, the Lags play a series of Home & Away matches against other local clubs.

The Motto “Dum Vivimus Vivamus” is roughly translated as “While you live, live well”
