An ideal number of 18 players began with a shotgun start of 6 teams of three players in El Plantio 2’s ‘Jokers’ team game. Captain of the winning team, Alan Janes had a superb game scoring 40 Stableford points, including four birdies and registered two nearest the pins, both within touching distance of a ‘hole-in-one.’

However, he was upstaged by John Burke who scored his first ever ‘hole-in-one’ at the tricky (for some) hole 4, but his 38 Stableford points was not nearly enough to propel his team beyond second place.

Nearest the pins, Holes 2 & 8 – Alan Janes

Third Place, Lawrence Wanty, Brian Edwards, Brian Coupe – 96 points.

Second Place, John Burke, Lyn Young, Mike Davies – 104 points.

First Place, Alan Janes, Ronnie Campbell, David Swann – 111 points.
