CAPTAIN'S SENIOR MOMENTS
- Seniors earn creditable draw in season opening Inter-Club match at Orchardleigh.
- The 'League of Gentlemen' team of Alistair Mullineux, Julian Stapleton, Peter Hill and Andy Elphick win the Indoor Pitch and Putt competition with 69 points (on putting countback)
- John Packett, Peter Bell, Colin Venus (that man again..) and Clive Vian win the Florida Scramble with 73. Just beating the Captain's team (Bond,Hawkins,Timms & Abbott) by one point...putt!!
- That man Peter Bell wins the Div 1 Stableford with 36 points. Peter Clarke just edges the Div 2 with 33 points on countback from Bob Horton. Divison 3 winner was Bob Fill with 35 points/
- The Dryer Cup was won by the South despite a good showing from the Northern lads in the final round of singles.
Achievement of the Month (February)
This month my choice is not from the list of competition winners or an outstanding performer. Instead I've chosen someone who due to the 'no buggies' weather plus illness has played hardly any golf. Despite this he still claimed 3rd place in the Div 2 Stableford with 30 points....it's Gavin (the Gov) Baker!!

Rule(s) to Remember
The new rule allowing the flag to remain in the hole whilst putting is intended to speed up play. It would appear that it can do just the opposite IF we don't work out with our playing partners/opponents how best to avoid the time consuming flag in/flag out putting order. The rule exists..common sense should prevail.
One scenario: Long putt downhill = IN and short put uphill – OUT
The Inter-Club season has started and new recruits Brian Hunter and Clive Haggett really enjoyed the experience so please give it a go! Check the board and sign up online or on the sheet. Teams will be selected from the complete list and not just the online entries.
Well done to all last months winners.
