SRI LANKAN GOLFING SOCIETY
Dear SLGS Member / supporter of the SLGS, Trust that you and your family are keeping well. Thank you very much for your support / continued support. Special thanks to Captain Nimal Amarasinghe and Treasurer Sivatha Ekanayake for their support and guidance.

Year 2016 was quite a successful one with three meetings all of which with very high attendance. First meeting of the year - spring meeting was held at The Mill Ride Golf & Country Club, Ascot, Berkshire and was attended by thirty members. SLGS autumn meeting was held at the Sanford Springs Golf & Country Club, Kingsclare, Hampshire, again a complete success - attended by twenty four golfers and eight non golfers. Very special thanks to those who took part and to those who assisted in organising both events.

Year 2016 also saw the start of a new event a friendly match against the golfing society of the Sri Lankan Medical & Dental Association (SLMDA). Match was held at The Oxfordshire Golf & Country Club, attended by 30 golfers. Event was a huge success, as a result it has been decided to make the friendly match an annual event to be held at The Oxfordshire and in the last week of August. Huge thanks to all members of SLMDA, SLGS, and friends of SLGS. Special thanks to Dr. Bandu Gaminiratane, Dr, Ajantha Jayatunga and Dr. Veerasiri Punchiheva for getting the event off to a flying start.

DIARY DATES FOR 2017
Spring Meeting Friday 9th June
Match against SLMDAWednesday 30th August (to be confirmed)
Autumn Meeting Friday 22nd & Saturday 23rd September

Sincerely hope you would be able to support all three events.
