Fabulous weather conditions and the course in truly superb condition meant around 100 Visitors and SRGC Members had a great day on Sunday at the Gents Spring Open with an AM Individual Medal followed by PM Foursomes. The rough was punishing but fair, the greens were running very fast but true, and the subtle and sometimes not so subtle undulations were commented on by many players. Great job by Gareth and his team who worked very long hours in the days leading up to this competition, thank you.
A competitior in the first group out at 07:52 finished with a nett 69 and I thought we'd probably see someone shooting around nett 67, but it wasn't to be as that first competitor was our own Harvey Braime and the eventual winner of the Elms Cup for the best nett score, also equalled by two other players.
Best gross and winner of the McCorquodale Cup was Carl Bartle from Lincoln Golf Club with a 73. Three SRGC players & Raymond Hall from Norwood Park all came iin 2 shots further back.
The PM Foursomes had 40 pairs competing for the Bursnall Cup, SRGC pairs took the first two places with winners Richard Baker & Andrew Glencross scoring +1, Simon Mulvey & Roger Rawson one shot further back.

Nearest the pin in 2 on the 15th was won by Alan & David Brooks (Erewash Valley & Coxmoor) ending up about 2 feet away apparently and holing out for a birdie.
I hope everyone enjoyed the day!!!
