Seniors Stableford

The weather forecast for today was strong winds and heavy rain. With that in mind, a number of players decided to give it a miss and so the few that did risk it just played a 9-hole Stableford. As it turned out, although it was windy, the rain didn't materialise until mid to late afternoon when everything was done and dusted!!!!
Of the 8 that played, Roy Whiting was top scorer over the 9 holes with 15pts. Raymond Bilton was second scoring 13pts followed by Geoff Denner and Sam Whiting both on 12pts.
