THERE were a few more seniors playing last Thursday for the stableford competition where 22 took part.

The course was still very wet in places with the greens in good condition considering the amount of rain that has fallen in the last four weeks,

The wet course did not affect the scores with some incredible scores being returned; especially by Mr consistent Rolly Council who came in with 43 points even though he was trying to protect his handicap by easing back on the back nine.
