The course was still playing heavy, and with only three holes closed the members got to enjoy playing a near full round of golf thanks to the hard work of the green’s staff in keeping the course in a good playable condition.

The winner this week was Francis Kelly with 35 points, With 17 points on his front eight holes, Francis had six pars on the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th 7th and 8th holes and only two bogeys at the 3rd and 9th holes.

He had a steady back seven of level par with seven straight pars for another 18 points to win on a count back.

His back seven holes contained another two birdies at the 13th and 18th holes and another five pars for a bogey free round of golf. He is warming up nicely for the new summer season coming shortly.
