Competitions:-

Texas Scramble (Front 9) – The teams are reasonably well paired handicap wise so it will be the best nett score that wins this competition – no handicap adjustment!  For the teams of four please note that (2 drives per person must be used), for teams of three (3 drives per person must be used) – so, no pressure guys (please mark your card with who drives on each hole)!!

Last Chance Trophy (Back 9) – An individual stableford competition off full society handicaps.  Current trophy holder is Mr Ray Hamilton.  Please putt out no “gimmies” for this event gentlemen.  In an event of a tie – count back will the stableford score over the last three holes initially, if this does not identify a winner the stableford on the final hole hopefully will do the trick.

Longest Drive: 18th hole

Nearest the Pin: 15th hole
