Early cool weather greeted the first few groups but by late morning a glorious sunny day with gentle breezes helped 28 groups of 3 enjoy a wonderful day's golf at Stoke Rochford GC.
The event had an international feel to it with some players flying in from Sweden, Germany, Hong Kong & the US for their annual golf tour that finished at SRGC with a day to remember for all of them, followed by a fine meal before heading off to various airports for their journeys home.
A dozen or so of the large contingent from Beedles Lake GC were still enjoying our hospitality many hours after finishing playing.
Multiple visitors commented on the superb course condition, offering a "tough but fair" challenge, although one or two were heard to remark that "not all putts break towards the river"!!
1st place nett : Mick Bailey, Graham Gresswell, Robin Wright - 86 points
2nd place nett : Darrell Knight, Gavin Green, Phil Davy - 82 points
3rd place nett : Simon Mulvey, Paul Knapp, Tom Greenfield - 81 points (back 9 countback of 45 points)
Five players achieved 2s on either the 7th or 12th holes for a sizeable share of the pot.
We hope all that played had an enjoyable day and look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Check out our other 2018 Open events here
