Friday 7th September saw the annual Old Breconians verses the Old Llandoverians golf fixture take place at Southerndown GC.
Mother Nature presented a wonderful gift to mark the resumption of this hugely enjoyable fixture – a glorious sunny, warm and almost windless day greeted our arrival, and this continued all day.
