Last Saturday was a Club Am Am 2 from 4 and was played in beautiful, sunny, warm weather. With 118 players signed on for the comp the place was buzzing and scoring was good.
In 3rd was the team of Steo Caley, David Kinrade, Rob Tate Jnr and Michael V Kelly with 87 points. Just ahead of them were Robert Gardner, Graham Smith, Neil Robb and James Smith with 88 points, just missing out on top spot after a last 6 hole countback. The winning team members were Vic Ferns, Paul Aston, Danny Howland and Steve Corlett also with 88 points. Nearest the pin on the 10th was won by Peter Manzi.
This Saturday is the 1st round of the Will Kirkpatrick Medal and the 1st week off the white tees, summer must be nearly here!

Tony Grant was the eventual winner with 36 points ahead of Nick Lyman who won a last 9 hole countback, to claim 2nd with 35 points. In 3rd was Rob Tate Jnr with his 2nd prize of the weekend.

Mother’s Day Weekend Extravaganza
We had a very successful and busy Mother’s Day Weekend last week. Saturday afternoon we held a Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea which over 70 people of all ages attended during the course of the afternoon. They enjoyed a beautiful selection of freshly made sandwiches, homemade scones and cakes and other sweet treats such as chocolate maple flapjack. All the Mums received a gossamer bag filled with chocolates as an extra treat.
Sunday was our Mother’s Day Carvery and over 80 people were present for 3 courses of excellent food, beautiful views of the course and surrounding hills and a lovely atmosphere. The Mums on Sunday also received a gift of a gossamer bag filled with fragrant individual soaps. A great weekend was had by all.
