WEDNESDAY, May 23 – The Wednesday men sought a social/golf balance with a “Gentsomes” followed by lunch, which most stayed around for.

In a format that takes the best two Stableford scores per hole, the winners were close to a 3pt average.

Thursday, May 24, Ladies Stableford’ (gold) – Ladies had a small but talented field out there. Conditions were overcast and very cool.
