On Saturday the men ventured out in cold, windy and small showers to play a Mulligan – Stableford for S Stephen Trophy.  Ross Brown had a big grin knowing the handicapper couldn’t get him for his good round of 48 pts and he still had a couple of shots left. Balls were won by Ross and Pepper Thompson  (who also had a smile) with 46 pts. NTP was won by Merv Douch.

Sunday was a Par for Club Trophy. Ind. Acc. What a difference a day makes with the men playing in beautiful spring weather.
