Week ending 14th July 2018

Hi reader,


Unfortunately another damp and chilly day although the rain did hold off until the end of the field.

Highlights: A Grade Winner - Peter Kennedy 40, B Grade Winner - Phil Mason 38, C Grade Winner - Geoff Edwards 39.

'Most Use of the Course' Winner: Andre Smit - 18. Andre, unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), it will be ten years before you can win this award again!

All prizes had a Coopers flavour. You can click on the 'Read more' link below to see full results for Wednesday.

Great to see Michael Loe walking again after breaking his ankle. Michael willingly chipped in and provided much appreciated assistance with the score cards on Wednesday so if you were not happy with your score speak to Michael!

From all reports Andrew Dick is mobile and recovering well after hip surgery. Look forward to seeing you both back on the course shortly.


Grant Smallacombe is currently a clear leader, 14 points ahead of Mike Kent and Ozzie Osborne who are tied for second. However, with 4 single Stablefords to be played in August, he is likely to soon be challenged for the lead by Peter Buchbach and Keith Harkins who are both in the top 10 but have played one less game.

Follow the 'Read more' link below to see the full Leaderboard.
