Tuesday 22 nd October Week 2 of the Winter Stableford saw a good turnout, 56 members played. The weather was fine with very little wind and the course was drying out nicely after last week’s downpours. I did hear one or two comments about the condition of the bunkers though. Scoring was quite good, and a couple of people had the handicaps adjusted. Captains Notices. 1. Heard from Andrew Moore, he will be missing for some time.
