The Club at North Halton – Premium Monday Event – May 27, 2019

The Club at North Halton – Premium Monday Event – May 27, 2019

Join us at The Club at North Halton for the first Premium Monday event of the season. A delight to the eye at all times of the year, North Halton is a challenging 18 hole, par-72 golf course that gives golfers a chance to use every club in the bag.

North Halton’s beautifully landscaped grounds incorporate the natural beauty of tree lined fairways, wooded ravines and natural foliage all set in the majestic valley of Georgetown.
Golfers will find play on the early holes is deceiving, with challenging holes requiring greater shot variations the rest of the way. That being said, the course is a pleasure to walk and players enjoy a comfortable 4h 15m pace of play.

Tee times begin at 3:00pm with dinner to follow in the clubhouse. Please indicate in the registration comment field if you need a gluten-free / nut-free / vegetarian meal option.
