The game this week on the 13th February was for a  three man per team game of Texas Scramble competed for by 5 teams. Undoubted star of the show was reasonably new member Scotsman John Burke, who not only scooped both nearest the pin prizes but captained his team to a narrow win by 0.07 points.

The team finishing second scored a magnificent 5 birdies but were defeated by a team playing consistently who were also helped by having a higher handicap.

Nearest the Pins, Hole 6 and 9 – John Burke. 3rd Place, Dave Swann, Allen Robinson, Mike Davies – Handicap 5.63 , 49.37 points. 2nd Place, Alan Janes, Brian Edwards, Lyn Young – Handicap 6.08 – 45.92 points.
