A great day for the Golf in the Wild Seniors Open yesterday with 51 entries – 48 recorded, 2 non-competition handicap ‘for fun’ entries (Rob Forster 41 points & Colin Chapman 24 points) & one untraced on CDH – Bob Allport – 31 points). Many thanks to all those who attended especially those who travelled significant distances to be there.
Most of all, congratulations to the four prize winners (for full results click here):
In addition, Malcolm Aitchison wins the lowest gross prize calculated by deducting the player’s handicap from the total points scored – in this instance 38 minus 9 = 29 – 4 points clear of the field.
We look forward to seeing everyone back again next year – Wednesday 12th June 2019 – put it in your diary now!
