STAG Dark Park 1 - Wed 4th Oct 17 - Victoria Park, Scotstoun -

Unfortunately due to extensive landscaping operations currently nearing completion within the Fossil Grove Quarter & thereafter extending to all other parts of the Park I have taken the decision to cancel DP1 @ Victoria Park.

Just to be on the safe side I decided to nip along to VP to check for locked gates etc & the etc was notices indicating the ongoing extensive landscaping shall be extending throughout the park.

Having planned Courses utilizing the Fossil Grove Quarter this just totally gubbed the courses.
