Two groups of 6 players - handicap and advanced - played in pleasant weather this Friday. Groundsman Ben and his team had cut that morning and set the hoops for the GC Eights this weekend, so the lawns were fast and the hoops challenging.
In the handicap competition three players stood out from the rest with 4 wins in five games. As they had all lost one game to each other the winner was decided on net hoops. Congratulations to Robin Wootton.
