SPRING VASE 2017
 
On Sunday 2nd April, Pottergate held the first of the seasons board competitions; in fantastic weather and the golf course looking and playing great' it was felt that a stableford score around forty points would need to be scored in both the gents and womens event to take the trophy.
 
This was not the case and in the end it took a countback in both the mens and womens event, with a score of 35points in the mens competition Colin Woolfson took the prize, with Luke Gray as runner -up, and  for the womens Abigail Copper with 29points came out on top from Kathy Woodcock.
 
Many thanks to all who took part.
