Hello All

Last Weekend we played the Fred Gates Trophy. This Competition was well supported with 31 Members competing. £90 was collected.

After returning to form and several near misses the Winner with 80//10/70 was Iain McEwan. Runner Up with 84/13/71 was Roy George on card play off from Tony Crispin 95//24/71.

Congratulations and well done Iain.

Birdie Balls were won by Tony Ho 1st, Gary Dickenson 12th, and special mention to Craig Deal who Birdied both the 10th and 12th holes. Well done.

Lowest Gross was Mick Edmunds 76/4/72. Good effort 😉

You hopefully have all received the Teams and order of play for the Match v Belfairs. Roger Foreman on Sunday 31st October. Remember the Clocks go back!

The Club will be open early for the usual refreshment so please get there early. If you are unable to attend please let Tony know so that he can activate one of the reserves. Where possible please wear Club attire.
