On Wednesday 20th Sept 32 Seniors Members travelled to Rutland Waters Golf Club to take part in Graham Secker’s away day.
With the views of Rutland Waters as the backdrop and the weather staying fair all of the teams set off with high hopes of high scores. Scoring was not easy with the greens recently sanded and with a freshening wind and so the winning score of 83 points from the team of Frank Overton, Derek Little, Trevor Collis & Richard Fowell was exceptional.
