Reporter: Ailsa Malneek

With the first month of spring behind us the members have been busy with various competitions.  Club champs are well under way and the weather has been kind.  The course is looking great, thanks to an army of volunteers for helping the greens team.  The head green keeper Richard Whisker has left and we thank him for his hard work over the past few years.

The grumpies didn’t play this week, but results from last week are as follows:1stDoug Fergusson & Bill Jago (38), 3rdTerry Blacktop (37, 4thMalcolm Bridge & Pat Jeffrey (35); Tom Bunny got a 2.

The 9-holers and ladies are in the midst of their club champs so no results from them this Wednesday.  On Friday however,  the ladies did win the Cotter Rosebowl after a few false starts and delays. The team were Sherry Weathertsone, Angela Busby, Sandra Petersen, Alison Tipler, Ju Allen and Silvia Beavis – well done ladies.

Thursday put on another beautiful day for over forty golfers; 1stGary Cuttance (41), 2ndNick Allen, Bill Jago, Mark Trafford, Colin Whibley-Smith, David Kershaw and Bill Gordon. Nearest the pin Andy Morison, twos: Joel Macklin & Keith Rayner.
