On Tuesday 17th Jan 54 Seniors took part in a Texas Scramble over the Brownlow course. The weather on the day remained dry and without any frost so we were able to play the competition on the main greens. Congratulations to the Green Keeper for presenting the course in such an excellent condition bearing in mind the recent weather and the time of year.
The competition was as always a fiercely fought affair but with a magnificent nett score of 69 the team of Howard Lockwood, Peter Long & Harry Paice came out comfortable winners.
At the presentation Graham Secker, Seniors Captain welcomed Peter Long & Ken Reilly to the Senior’s Section and wished them well for their first year with us and to Mike Bower who travelled back from Spain in the early hours to play in the competition.
