Last Wednesday’s Open Singles Stableford, which is sponsored by Delux Bathrooms and Tiling, was won by Kevin Callan (29) with a score of 40pts.

The Turkey competitions are back with singles stableford and team competitions being run each weekend from now until Christmas.

The annual Spirit competition will take place in mid-December. This year the Turkey vouchers will be awarded in the singles competition based on the best scores in handicap categories. As usual one point will be deducted from a player’s playing handicap for each turkey won.
