    2018 - Third Quarter Update

    Two ladies accompanied by Sarah Baldwin from the Alzheimer's Society visited Normanby Hall golf course on 20th September 2018 to give advice on where the issues occur with regard to signage at the course and how it can be improved.

    Suggestions include:

    * Making maps available for the course

    * Tee posts are painted in bolder colours

    * The hole numbers are painted larger so that it is easier to see upon approaching the posts.

    This feedback has been sent to Normanby Hall golf course for their consideration.
