Paul Batt hit 324 for the 36 holes to take out B Grade, Michael Gallagher on 351 in C Grade and up and coming young junior Jack Wooldridge on 371 was successful in D Grade. Look out Uncle Brock, young Jack could well be challenging you in a couple of years.

Some members have recently commented that it is the best they have seen our golf course for many years. Thanks you must go to Sean, Mark and Fergus for their efforts in making our course look as good as it does. Thanks must also be extended to the volunteers who assist our green staff.
