Seniors May Medal

A very sparse field for the Seniors Medal today. With many of the regular seniors away in sunny Portugal (lucky devils!) and quite a few others opting not to play today, just 9 hardy men braved the ferocious winds and squally showers to play. Well done to those who completed their rounds in very trying conditions which was played as Stableford.
The clear winner was Richard Aldred with a very good score of 32pts. Runner-up was Chris Moore (27pts) followed by Mike Miller just one point further back.

No two's were recorded today, so all proceeds will roll over to next month's medal.

May Medal

With a few people away or preparing to go away to sunnier climes, just a small field of 13 players for this month's medal. A bit chilly with a stiff easterly breeze blowing made scoring a bit tricky.
The winner today with a nett 70 was Rowland Barnfield. Runner-up just one shot further back was Paul Tebbutt (lowest gross) followed by Geoff Denner (nett 72) in third place.

Just one 2 recorded today by Dianne McIntyre at the 8th hole. Dianne scooped to two's pool!
