Twenty-four golfers took the journey out to Eastern Star, a course we hadn’t played in a while. It was in good nick, as you would expect, with fairways clean and tidy, bunkers well maintained and the greens spot on.

The numbers gave us the opportunity to play two flights and the A Flight saw Jon Dean return with the score of the day, 40 points. In second spot Mashi Kaneta came home a single point in front of a countback for third place, with Martin Todd getting the nod over both Martin Kempton and Keith Buchanan.

B Flight saw Shane Young making it two wins in a row while second past the post was to also be sorted out by the countback system. Stuart Mann edged it over his playing partner Dave (Is there any) Maw.

Twenty-one golfers signed up to play Greenwood today, one of the better courses in the region and always in tip-top condition. We attacked from the yellow tees on the C & B courses, which presented fairways in great shape and greens playing true but a little slow.

We were able to play two flights and A Flight saw Sal Brizzi, playing from his handicap of 7, return with a net 65. Second place went to Martin Todd a couple of shots behind Sal and taking out third a single shot behind Toddy was Keith Buchanan.

The February mug winner came in the B Flight where Bernie McCart post a very good net 62. Second place went to Patrick Poussier who was a full six shots short of the winner. Third place was decided on countback with Roy Dayton edging it over Shane Young.
