On a fine sunny day on Tuesday 180 golfers took part in the Seniors Am-am Open at OGC. Congratulations to the winning team from Olton who won by one shot from a team from Lutterworth and Hinkley. Their team was captained by Mike Perry who decided to play at Olton because he bought his first golf clubs approximately 40 years ago from David Playdon. They were very impressed by Olton and will be back next year. The team that came third also had 83 points but lost out on the back nine by one shot.
The golf course was beautifully presented and the greens were fast and true. Our visitors were very complimentary about the course and the catering.
The winning teams were as follows
- 1st J Suthons,B Hanks, N Sellers N. Bain with 84 points
- 2nd M Perry, A Simmonds, K Courtney, A Milburn 83 points
- 3rd T Smith, G Chaplin, E Craggs, N Cameron 83 points
