Apologies for the late closure of this competition, there was an Admin issue I needed to check with the Pro Shop at 08:00 this morning before it could be finalised and closed. Also, an error in the way the competition was set up meant some of you would have seen an extra shot was being added to all Gents handicaps for a few hours, resolved late afternoon.
An excellent field of 95 entries, Gents & Ladies, on a beautiful Spring day resulted in some exceptional scores being recorded, most notably from Alan Marsh as the Overall Winner with 43 points and from Sam Austin the Division 1 Winner with 41 points. Their handicaps were reduced accordingly and then reduced even further as they were awarded Exceptional Scoring Reductions of a further 2 shots & 1 shot respectively.

The 2s club attracted 90 entries, and a total of 10 x 2s were recorded, although two of those came from the 5 players that didn't enter, again proving that "You need to be in it to win it"!! The Ladies led the way in 2s yesterday, whilst only 7 Ladies played, they managed 4 of the 10 x 2s recorded, well done Ladies. So, 8 winners shared £90 which has been paid into their competition wallets.
