The first major of the season was started in welcome sunshine that illuminated the splendour of our course and what contestants would enjoy over 36 holes. Needless to say the course was immaculate, the greens were over 11 on the stimp, and the holes were as challenging as ever.
It was the course that won the day as few players were under handicap for either round. In third place was Liam Phipps with a 75-66-141 which took his handiacp to +0.4. In close third place was James Heatherington, 71-69-140 who was blow for blow competing for the title with the eventual winner George Parker who had a 66 in the morning followed by a 72 in the afternoon and winning with 138. Well done George a great day!
Many of you missed out on the challenge of a 36 hole competition which turned out to be a memorable one on the day of the cup final! Don't forget to put your name down for the Birkett Barker Shield, 25th July.
