It was a case of lost balls galore, either in the pond on the 3rd and 7th holes or over the fence on the 3rd hole, as a blustery wind greeted the 14 competitors for the dreaded (for some) Monthly Medal on the 24th April.

Again conquering the conditions and the competition was serial medal winner Ian Henderson, recently returned from an illness enforced absence. Also to the fore was new member, Alistair Douglas and also Henry Mellor, in his last game before returning to the U.K.

Nearest the pins – Hole 2, David Swann and Hole 8, Ian Henderson. Third Place, Henry Mellor, Handicap 8.9 – 61.1 shots. Second Place, Alistair Douglas, Handicap 14 – 60 shots.

First Place, Ian Henderson, Handicap 7.1 – 56.9 shots.
