44 pairs took part in the Men’s Open on Sunday.  A little rain mid-morning had no real effect on the course which was in excellent condition helped by the earlier improvement in the weather and by a tremendous effort by the greens staff in the last 2 weeks. It was tough though and this was reflected in the scores .

First place £100 each with 40 points (back nine of 22) were Carl Smith and Andrew Wright from Penwortham Golf Club.

Second with 40 points £70 each (with a back nine of 21) were Neil Anderson/ Brian Lord from Nelson & Marsden Park

Third with 40 points £55 each (with a back nine of 19) were Philip Smith / Matthew Halstead from Nelson

Fourth place with 39 points and £40 each were Sam Hardwick and George Flanagan also from Nelson

There were many compliments from the contestants on the condition of the course, on the food and the service.  Many thanks to all who contributed to a very successful day.
