TURKEY Trot, Round Four: 1 Michael Arkle 73-6=67; 2 David Pledger 82-13=69; 3 John Brown 79-10=69.


WINTER Stableford, Round Four: 44pts F Bolton; 43 L Charlton; 43 K Stansfield; 40 J Ramshaw; 39 G Preston; 39 S Hogg; 39 K Hodgson; 39 H Davison; 39 S Bains; 39 S Urwin.


TURKEY Trot number three at the Old Links and, with the bogey format and the lengthened winter course, par would seem a good return. However, when free dinners are concerned the field had other ideas.

AJ Burrows took the first spot with a score of 3up, quite appropriate given the amount of rabbits on the course.

Geoff Dunn grabbed nine points with a score of 2up despite being over the wire more than Virgil Hiltz.

On the same score were ‘Liam’ Brennan and R Farrell, whose back nines let them down a shade.

On 1up were Mark Nick and Michael Weightman with the rest of the field down to level getting points.

Back to strokeplay next week for number four and a north wind for a change.


THIS Saturday is the annual presentation night in the clubhouse. Please be there at 7pm for a 7.30 start. There is a bus running from the Market Place, leaving at 6.30pm.
