The penultimate game of a very cold Winter League season was played out at the weekend with the Sun Am Plate, writes Andy Wagner.

All the Winter League pairs who failed to make it to the final played a winner take all Better Ball Stableford on a surface resembling an ice rink more than a golf course.

This was a game where you had to adapt or die. Floated wedge shots were out of the question unless you wanted to see your ball climb 20-feet into the sky on its first bounce.

This year’s resilient pair of winners were Steve Waller and Max Pipe with a very commendable 40 points.

Next week sees the final when Steve Charlton and Richard Beard take on Jim Wallis and Bob Cleal.
