Tuesday – Friendly Foursomes was the format last week. A fast game for cold weather. The winners with a score of 75.5 were Katy Cook and Lin Goodey. And just half a shot behind, in 2nd place with 76, were Brigid Kerr and Susanna Chan. Well done – good scores

Thursday – Torrential rain all day Wednesday and overnight meant the front 9 holes were closed. Therefore our first Medal Qualifier of 2016 had to be cancelled.
