The Captains are hosts this Sunday with prizes galore. See the poster for details.
A personal best score from Alison Chadwick earned Alison 2nd place (net 63) – well done Alison! The overall winner was an entrant from Altons Golfing Society – 62. A sub-par round from Jamie Cushing of Putney Park was highly commendable. Best man for RPGC was John Ritchie @ 68. Nearest the pin prizes were available at all par 3s – and also a novel nearest the pin @ 14.
Handicaps incorporate latest NAPGC event at Trent Park where CSS was SSS at par 70 (36 points).

Jayne Maxwell shot a net 69 and her aggregate score of 140 means that she moved up two places to win the Handicap Cup for the third year running. Runner-up was Lia Donath with an aggregate 144.
Julie Smyth’s net 69 and hence a net aggregate 136 meant that she maintained her lead from the first round to win the Pembroke Cup, notwithstanding a net 68 from Jinni Beacham which gave her a net aggregate 138 and the runner-up spot.
James Inglis finished 2nd in the senior division a shot behind on 154 with Paul Appleton a further shot back on 155.
