Winter League Champion is…

…John Hoystead!

Congratulations to John Hoystead who claimed a convincing victory in the Porters Wood Winter League 2010/11. The league was held over 4 months and players entered 7 stableford scores in total. John won with a total of 141 points. In second place was George Waterworth with 134 points; third was Bill Wainwright with 128 points; fourth was Phil Kearsley with 125 points; fifth was Harold Davenport with 122 points and sixth was Jonathen Kearsley with 111 points. Players can collect their prizes at the clubhouse.

The Spring league will start on Monday March 14th. New players are very much welcomed! Remember non-members can take part, and all players will be issued with a handicap.

The course has ‘wintered’ well and the greens are in great condition (see picture below), so if you are interested in taking part call in today and ask to speak with Martin, who will be happy to explain how the league runs and other competitions we will be hosting this year.

As always the course is open to the public - there is no need to book a tee time, simply come and down and play at a time to suit you!
