Down the AP7 to Roda Golf for our away day. We had a full compliment of players, course in brilliant condition and wall to wall sunshine, what more would you want in January. Scoring pretty good on a tough course, with our Handicap Secretary coming in with 35 points to take first place in the Gold Category. Only two points on the last 2 holes could have been sandbagging.

Gold Category: 1st R Smith 35 pts  2nd A Williams 28 pts on C/b 3rd R O’Sullivan 28 pts

Silver Category: 1ST Rocket Ron Nicholson 30 pts 2nd A Billings 29 pts 3rd K Hopkins  26 pts

Nearest The Pins: Hole 2 Arfer, Hole 7 P Mutter, Hole 11 M Anderson, Hole 13 P Wilkinson

Longest Drive R Smith – Best Guest Ken Ogden
