Day Away - Orchardleigh, 11th June

Twenty Five members played in the annual (except for last year!) Day Away Stableford. It was organised by Ben Miller and took place on an overcast but dry and warm day at Orchardleigh. After the usual bacon rolls and coffee the groups set out on the long 6800 yard parkland course feeling grateful for the WHS that allotted an additional 3 strokes to most of the handicaps! When the scores were checked the overall winner was Grant Jones with 44 points. Captain Derek was second on 41 after count back from Craig Pitcher and Mark Maguire. Andy Guppy was 5th with 40 pts. Andy Guppy and James Maidment won the two nearest the pin competitions on 7th and 17th holes. Big thanks to Ben, Derek and Orchardleigh for a very enjoyable day.
