Results
Stableford 2 on Saturday 22nd February was another competition played in the poor weather we've had this month. Eric Berge had the best score with 34 points on the Eden course.

In the Winter Leagues, The Scratch team won 3-1 at Ladybank on Sunday while the Handicap team lost at Charleton meaning that Charleton win that league - well done to them. Our team can still finish runners-up and we wish them the best for their last two games.
