Seniors enjoy away day at Beeston Fields

Seniors’ Captain Peter Macdonald Pearce held his Away Day at Beeston Fields in Nottingham this week on a day of mixed wind and rain. Everybody was caught out with the slickness of the greens which also seemed to have lots of hidden slopes. Last year’s winner of the Joe Ball Bowl, David Aldred, seemed to cope with them better than most. Reflecting the difficulty of the course for a visitor, the scores were very low and David won with a score of 33 points. Second placed Dave Lucas seemed to get to grips with the course in the back nine and came in with 31 points. David also won the longest drive and nearest the pin. Joe Ball was third with 30 points. Seventy two was the winning score for the top team of Peter Macdonald Pearce, Martin Hope and David Aldred.

Peter thanked the former Captains for their support this year with a special mention to Club Secretary Dennis Millington, who was a special guest on the day, for his considerable help this year.
