2nd February 2015 Competition
I don’t know whether it was because the kids had gone back to school but we had an exceptional turnout for today’s competition with a field of 92 starters, including 32 visitors. Maybe it was all the extra NTPs we put on, but whatever the reason, I hope the attendance continues to increase in the coming months. The conditions were fine with a slight breeze and the winners were:

Division 1 1st Peter Waterman (RV) 40 Pts 2nd Jeff Draper 39 Pts 3rd Gary Eagleton 38 Pts

16th February 2015 Competition
It was only a small turnout of 37 players for today’s competition and I was lucky enough to be paired with Larry Kent and John Hol. Both John and myself played pretty good golf but it was Larry who was just burning up the course. He must have had 5 or 6 one putt greens on the front nine, including a couple of 20 footers!
There was only one division today and the prize winners were:
1st Larry Kent 42 Pts
2nd G Behan (TG) 37 Pts (c/b)
3rd Ray Pearson 37 Pts
