There was a splendid turn out of 20 players this week who competed on the first day of winter greens. Despite the dreadful weather of late, the conditions were quite pleasant, apart from having to chip the ice of our shoes before every shot.

The winner this week was Roger Key who has clearly made the successful transition from the steamy jungles of Botswana to the rather more temperate Peebles climate.

Runner up on 18 points was Eric Ward who edged out David Wallace on a count back. Once Eric learns to play the first 3 holes he will be a weekly contender! 

There were no birdies to report this week and no 'nearie' at the 7th due to winter greens.
