Rumour has it that the game was played off the grass tees for the first time this year and in glorious unseasonal sunshine and temperatures.
With quite a number of absentees due to the weekend away in Tewkesbury, there was a fairly small field but a close result. Three players scored 38 points, with Mark Scott emerging the winner, having a better back 9 than Steve Cross and John Ahad in second and third place respectively.

Spring Stableford Rd1 / Spring Meeting Rd1
On an unlikely March day which was gloriously warm and sunny (somewhat different to a week ago), 17 ladies contested the medal round for the Spring Meeting.
Kate Emanuel was the winner with a net 71, attributing her baby bump to keeping her more grounded! In second place, two shots behind with a net 73 was Anne Holding-Parsons. There were three birdies recorded today, Kate on the 1st, Julie Smyth on the 3rd and Lia Donath on the 9th.
The first round of the Spring 36 hole stableford was played in glorious early Spring conditions with T shirts the required attire mid-round.
There were some good scores to match the conditions with Mark Scott the winner on a back 6 count back from Danny Deprez – both 43 points. A point further back was Steve Cross. CSS was unchanged for SSS at 38 points.
Seven brave souls took part in the March Monthly Medal confronting rain from the beginning and turning heavy on the back nine and gale force winds against on the 18th.
The scores reflect the inclement conditions. The winner was Lia Donath with a net 78 followed by Louise Williams with a net 83 and it was a reduction only round.
Considering the wet inclement conditions, a healthy field of competitors braved the elements. Scoring was good with Nick Rogers the winner with 67, one ahead of Anthony Tama, Kerry Sargeant, Chris Jones & Nigel Ward. SSS was increased just one to 66.
