A full field of 26 teams competed in The first Open of the club year. The course was presented at its best for this time of year and the feedback from our visitors on the day was an overwhelming thumbs up.
With the tees pushed back for the first time this year the course played long, but the firm fairways we associate with summer golf helped a little. Home advantage is always a plus and with seven Longcliffe teams competing, course familiarity proved to be decisive with three teams finishing in the top five places. The winners with a total of 89 points were from Longcliffe led by Team Captain Keith “It was nothing to do with me!” Hough, Club Captain Dave Wilkinson, Andy Wilkinson and Denis Wilcockson. In second place were Oli Willson, Rich Harris, Jack Mayfield and David Cooper with 87 points. Third place, with 86, points went to L Hardy, J Mellor, R James and K Winterbotham from Nuneaton.
