The Battle Trophy Series started this Saturday. There will be 6 rounds in the series, played throughout the year and ending in October. This first round attracted 60 players.
The weather on Saturday was not bad considering the past couple of months, but we did experience 4 season in one day, with sunshine and clear skies, cold temperatures and the odd squall of rain and even sleet. The wind was North Easterly, coming straight at you on the first tee. Stronger in the morning it was gusting up to 68 Kmph.
After 3 months in Australia, Josh Greenaway came back refreshed and on great form. Playing off scratch he shot 73 to win. Josh Birdied the 9th and 13th. Andy Bunt also scored 73 playing off his 6 handicap (now 5!) just losing to Josh on countback. Andy had birdies on the 4th and the 15th.
Returning with 74; John Arnold took 3rd place on countback from Guy Hovil in 4th, John Pease in 5th, John Westlake in 6th and Steve Cock in 7th. Stuart Fleet shot 75 to take 8th place.
