Despite the relatively poor weather conditions during parts of the day 36 players entered the 1st event of the SRGC Winter Series Open Rollups. Luffenham Heath Member Greg Shelton, playing off scratch was the clear winner with 40 points after bogeying the 1st but then recording 5 birdies elsewhere.
The course and greens are in excellent condition when considering the amount of rain that has fallen recently, SRGC is renowned for it's winter playability, generally being open when many other local courses are closed or severely restricted. The real credit for our playability goes to our Head Greenkeeper Gareth Austin and his very small but excellent team supporting him, thank you Gentlemen, your efforts are very much appreciated!!
