The St.Enodoc Senior Seniors Open attracted a field of 40 over 75s for this annual event played on the Holywell on May 18th. With good weather and some quality, experienced players the scores in this better ball ¾ handicap Stableford competition were exceptionally good with 8 scores of over 40 points and even the wooden spoon went to a pair with 34 points. As well as the main competition there were closest to the pin prizes on the 2nd and 16th won by John Godwin (St Enodoc) and Derek Holloway (Teignmouth) respectively.

With a raffle, a 2s sweep and a hearty meal after the event it was a great success particularly for those in the prizes below where the results were extremely close with multiple countbacks being required to find the lucky ones:-

1st  Barry Polkinghorne (St Enodoc) & Rob Thompson (Lanhydrock)  44 pts
2nd Roy Darnell & Tyrrell Sandry (both St Enodoc)  44 pts
3rd  Ian Boyd (St Enodoc) & Peter Cullinan (Trevose)  43 pts
