After a glorious March we were all hoping for much of the same in April; unfortunately it didn’t turn out like that! Although it has been the wettest April on record for years, the golf course has stood up extremely well to the wet weather, with the course only closing on a handful of days.
Season Kicks Off with the First Medal of the Year

|Division 1 - John Beardsley: net 69 |
Division 2 - Fraser McKay: net 68
|Division 3 - Nigel Clarke: net 65 |
Division 4 - Daniel Barlow: net 70
