Allendale Juniors Excel

Allendale Juniors excelled in the 9 hole Texas Scramble at Matfen
In the final competition of the Texas Scramble series, which has been held at Matfen over the winter, Allendale Juniors had their best scoring result yet, finishing 3 under par on the 9 hole course off a team handicap of +2.
We did not play in the first competition but won the second of the four competitions back in November. On Sunday, the ever-present team of Carl Baxter, Jack Campbell, Haydn Rutherford and Daniel Twizell, finished equal first with their net score but came second on countback.
As an extra bonus, Haydn took the award for nearest to the pin at the 3rd hole and then on the final hole, the team were awarded nearest to the pin after 2 shots.
Congratulations to the team for these outstanding results.
