Rain hits seniors

TWENTY seven hardy members of the Kenwick Park Golf Club Seniors Section watched Grahame Ward drive in as the new Seniors Captain for 2011.

This drive-in was delayed from December due to the heavy snow. As heavy rain set in, the opening competition was reduced to a nine-hole stableford with Brian Thaxter scoring 18 points to win the front nine and Andy Sherratt winning the back nine on a countback with 16.

The team prizes were claimed by Brian Thaxter, Drew Hipkiss and Tony Wren with a combined score of 50 points on the front nine whilst Roger Goldsmith, John Williams and Pip Mounfield took the honours on the back nine with 46.
