Smithfield Open

Congratulations to John Heddle for his victory in the season's first Open. He eased his way round in 75 for a nett 62 in tricky conditions to beat Robert Gatt by two shots. Steven Rendall continued his impressive early season form by shooting a 66 gross to win that section by a narrow(!) 6 shots.

Thanks must go to the Smithfield for continuing their support for this event and to Rae for getting the course in great early season condition.

Winter League

The final result is in for this season's Winter League. Skip nipped ahead of Gerry in the final week for runners-up spot but it was long time leader Eoin (S)Harcus that claimed the trophy. The weekly encouragement from his fellow competitiors surely helped his cause!
