Seniors report – Week ending 18th March
On Thursday 15th March the Milford Haven golf club seniors played a non- counting handicap stableford competition, a qualifier for the John Winter Tankard. The reason for the non-counting was that the greens had been hollowed cored and sanded on the Monday and Tuesday of the week, not that it made any difference to the scores which was returned with the top three places all with scores above the normal CSS, all scoring over forty points. The course was very wet in places after the very heavy rain which fell on the previous day which meant that buggies were not allowed on the course which kept the entries down to twenty- eight seniors.
The winner on the day was Billy West winning his second competition in three weeks with 42 points with second and third places both scoring 41 points
1st Billy West 42 points
