18 intrepid members braved a windy, cold winter’s day to play a fun 3 club event. Each player could have only 3 clubs in their bag to play 18 holes, combining that with the weather it was not surprising that the scores were ordinary. The best on the day was Alvin (Purple) Douglas 94/64, Defeating the consistent Max Hall 82/66. The highlight of the day was a visit from Doug McKillop who has not been well of late.
