On a sunny Sunday morning 12 golfers made the long trek down to Ripon to represent Parklands in a joint Rabbits/Inter event against 4 other clubs in what has become an annual early season friendly match. The format was 4 doubles and 4 singles matches with points awarded for each hole won, halved or lost.
Ian Thompson and Frank Stoop won their doubles match while Mark Hurley, Dicky Rutherford and James Carr were victorious in their singles matches. The net results were that Parklands were co-winners of the event.
In addition to the winners, other players who contributed to the overall Parklands team total (some contributing less than others) were Iwan Owen & Ian McPhillips, Tommy Watson & Colin Davison, Barry Hurst & Frank Findlay and Eamon Farrer. Also a special thanks to Barry and James who were drafted in as last minute replacements.
A winning start to the season which will hopefully continue when the regular season starts in April for the Inter Team (Handicap 8 to 15) and May for the Rabbits Team (Handicap 16+),
If any members are considering joining either team please get in touch with Craig Stewart (Inter) or Tommy Watson (Rabbits) (Middle of the picture with his shirt hanging out…)
