An unseasonably cold snap compelled most golfers to be back into their winter kit over the past week, this despite Winter Rules being no longer in force, writes Anne Desmoulins.
Low cloud greeted the Seniors' for their Friday meeting, but it soon cleared to allow for the playing of the Ronnie Pew 100 competition.
Donated by Ronnie, in his 100th year of playing golf, the Salver was the target for the 78 golfers taking part.
Some new faces have joined the Seniors and were made welcome by the members.
Two's were achieved by just five of the players taking part: Jim Kerr, Tony Proudfoot, George Smith and new member Heinz Klepacz at the second, and by captain Steve Butcher at the 12th.
The 18-hole Stableford competition was won by Barry Rogers with an impressive 39 points, and he was presented with the plate by vice captain David Scott.
Following Barry in Division One, was Chris Street who also had 39, but lost on the countback ruling.
Next was Jim Wallis with 36 pts - the same as Steve Butcher, who was fourth.
Division Two was won by Tom Tunnicliffe with a very creditable 37 points, edging John Harvey - also with 37 - into second spot.
Next was Tony Proudfoot (36) and fourth place went to George Smith (35).
