On Tuesday 23rd May, 14 members and a guest competed in a tricky individual competition involving the use of 2 clubs and a putter – each player choosing the clubs to be used before play commenced.

The winner turned out to be the solo guest, Jason Mainwaring, who had a very creditable return of 37 Stableford points and will be rewarded for his efforts with a handicap cut.

Competing in his first club competition since returning to Spain for the summer from Dubai – TO GET OUT OF THE HEAT – was John Wilby, who very nearly scooped the prizes with 2 nearest the pins and 3rd place. Pride of place, however, must go to Bryan Watson, who recorded a Hole-in-One on Hole 8 – the 2nd time he has performed the feat on this hole.

Nearest the Pin, Holes 2 & 5 – John Wilby. 3rd Place, Handicap 3 – John Wilby, 33 points.

2nd Place, Handicap 7 – Ian Henderson, 34 points. 1st Place, Handicap 14 – Jason Mainwaring, 37 points.
